hey, i need a budget computer build for £230/$369
i already have, a case, power supply, cd drive and a hard drive.
i would like a quad cpu. i would like to watch hd movies, play games, script java and html, listen to music, browse the web, photoshop, itunes and dreamweaver.
please could somone give a me cheap build which fits around that budget ?
i was thinking of an amd bullldozer or amd phenom for the cpu.
AMD is simply too slow. I have that in my gaming system and its more than enough. Its also more than enough for the basic workstation you have in mind.
AMD is not simply too slow at all, it is more than quick enough for what the OP needs its just not as fast as intel, in fact i can safely say the OP in real world terms would not notice the difference between a decent AMD Phenom II X4 quad and an i3.
Heres my recs..asuming your case is compatible with full atx mobos and you have a decent power supply.
