AND again nobody responds to me..... wow... dont knoww why but people hate me in here
August 9, 2012 5:08:58 PM

Well what are you looking for? You said you don't need a GPU or proccessor. Those are the 2 hardest parts to look for. The rest is super easy. Just get a compatible motherboard and case and get 4-8gb of ram. Also why would you think someone would respond already? Most posts you will have a reply within an hour. You didn't even wait thirty minutes. Have some patients.

I built this as cheap as possible. You should have some room to spare if you decide to get a discrete graphics card rather than the integrated, or just to upgrade various components that i listed. hope this helps

I also want to add that if youre looking to spend 500, use paciolis build haha

Do you buy any chance live next to a micro center?
If you get an i5 2500k from there for 160 You get 50 bucks off any mobo.

Hope that helps

The deal with the 2500K expired at the end of June
But you can get an i5 3570K for $190 and $50 off the mobo of your choice.

Great job rex000! You fit a decent sized SSD and an HD 7750 into the build for a mere $411.87.

Too bad the SSD is out of stock...
August 14, 2012 8:07:22 PM

Thanks!

It IS too bad the SSD is OOS. In any case,

It's $360 for the PC... if you have more of a budget, upgrade the CPU to a Pentium G6XX, G8XX, or a Core i3.
Or if you want better graphics, Upgrade to a Radeon HD 7770 or 7850.

Alright. Go for this then:

Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor - $220
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - $90
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus CPU Cooler - $20 (after $10MIR)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

** All from newegg.com w/ Free Shipping.

This should fit into a $450-500 budget, provided you don't need a graphics card.
Again, drop the Celeron G540, the H61 motherboard, the Zalman SSD.

According to @Pacioli, if i buy the motherboard and cpu over at Microcenter. it will cost me $190 [ CPU ] and $50 dollars off any mobo.

$535.93 - $90 = $455

i think that would be ok, now one question my old pc, it has a CD Drive, can i just used that and saved than 20 dollars?

thanks. [sorry for my awfull english]

No lol, that is not ok. Like 90% of all disks are DVDs so I highly recommend you spend the extra $20. It will be worth it. :)

thanks dude, but is there anything wrong with my list? :hello: 

EDIT: it is a CD/DVD Drive. my bad just check. i will just used that instead. since i dont really use that part exept for installing windows. how do i know if i can put it in my Build. those a cd/dvd drive needs a special motherboard kind of like an i5... or i could just use it almost on evrey motherboard?
