I need some help on building a new separate family computer for our old one is..old (7 years). Something not real expensive or high tech. Mainly for use of surfin' the web, using skype, email, the simple things.
Approximate Purchase Date: This Month
Budget Range: Max is $500. Preferably lower. Low as you can! (going cheap!)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Surfing the Web, Email, Skype usage and MSN, related social networking sites.
Parts Not Required: Monitor, keyboard, mouse and printer.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Most used is newegg.com. then amazon.com, microcenter.com
Country: United States
Parts Preferences: I'd like Intel MOBO & CPU preferably, Corsair PSU I like, Western Digital HDD, Mini-mid size Tower case. Whatever YOU think is reliable. If you think I don't need one or any of the brands for this type of build tell me your alternative, I'm open to suggestions.
SLI or Crossfire: Negative
Monitor Resolution: 1280x1024. (1440x990 if I decide to get a bigger monitor )
Additional Comments: Priority is quiet sounding PC, decent speed, up-to-date with everything. This PC is most likely going to be used by the females of the family majority of the time. As I said earlier this is a family computer no extreme gaming or editing at all.
