So I am building a computer for a relative who only needs to browse the internet read her email and right word documents at the most maybe stream youtube with out a hiccup.
The problem is that I don't even know where to start as far as hardware goes this far down the rung I'm used to building 1.5k to 2k+ computers the acronym APU is completely foreign to me I did a few searches on the board and am not seeing anything on builds going this cheap but I saw they have DIY combos starting at 280 with everything you need in them that looked good but I have no idea how this hardware performs and am not sure how to even rank it.
So I would be greatly appreciative of some assistance be it with understanding this kind of market or just being provided with a build or linked to a few good articles that talk about these kind of builds. I tried searching through toms past article and found nothing on sub 400 builds.
Hmm at that price point and needs, the latest integrated graphics would suffice, and if u didn't have an OS on hand, consider Linux? If u can spot good deals i would think landing something like a G530/H61 based config would be a good buy?
Im very sorry to not reply to this thread I made a couple posts on different forums and forgot this one because I used an email i dont normally check here is the build I went with and it fulfills its purpose 20 times over.
