I am completely new to building a computer, and would like advice. I'm starting with building a computer for my mother. She mainly uses excel, and sometime browses internet and plays window games. I have read different articles and reviews and I am working on a budget of as cheap as possible. So far this is what I have put together, let me know your opinions. She does want a large hard drive and therefore 1TB may be overkill, but she wants it to put photos and etc to it.
I am looking at everything from Ebuyer, I don't mind where I get parts from, so I can imagine I can put it together for cheaper. If someone could give me a place which does 'most' components more competitively.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 7550 Bundle including AMD Athlon 64 X2 7550 AMD Processor, Asrock AM2+ N68C-S UCC mATX Motherboard and Heatsink and Fan
But basically would you say for an extra £40 it would be worth it for what my mother is doing? If it is then I would look at changing everything altogether for the better processor. I only went for AMD as in threads 'people' said it is cheaper and there was a bundle, so easy to for a starter.
