I would like to build a computer to watch movies and maybe some light gaming (Minecraft, Morrowind, etc).





Approximate Purchase Date: Any time. The sooner the better.

Budget Range: 400. Can go to 500, but the lower the better.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Watching Netflix/Movies at 1080p, light gaming.

Parts Not Required: Monitor.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, eBay, TigerDirect, NCIX

Country: United States

Parts Preferences: Maybe an AMD APU.

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I'd prefer that it be very compact and quiet.

Hi Buddy! Try this:

Case: $49.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU/APU: $99.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Motherboard: $64.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU: $29.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM: $29.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HDD: $79.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

DVD DRIVE: $16.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Overall it's $371.93

P.S. If you plan to get a discrete gpu, you might want to bump the psu to 500 watts but for now the psu will suffice.
Tell me if I'm missing something. :)

I almost forgot. I also don't need an HDD and a DVD Burner.

I listed that I would like the build to be compact and quiet. That case doesn't look too compact. I need the case to fit on a large shelf (the shelf won't obstruct air flow.
