Can someone help me build a system for under 1000, does not need to be a gaming system. I'm not a gamer.
Approximate Purchase Date: 2 months
Budget Range: (e.g.: 300-400) $1000
System Usage from Most to Least Important: watching/ripping dvds, surfing net, ( watching movies is the main goal, my system now won't play many mp4's, mkv's etc without being choppy)
Are you buying a monitor: NO
Parts to Upgrade: (e.g.: CPU, mobo, RAM) EVERYTHINg
Do you need to buy OS: Yes
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg
Location: Pittsburgh, Pa USA
Parts Preferences: use to be partial to amd, but havent kept up in years, so no preference
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Additional Comments: Would like to add an ssd for boot, And would like the Corsair Graphite series 600t or the Antec DF-85 case, but not a deal breaker in any way. also would like the mobo to have one pata slot.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Upgrading because my system is over 12 years old lol, and i've been keeping it together with "DIGITAL" ducktape and glue for the past 8 years of that LMAO ( athlon xp 1600, asus a7n8x-e deluxe, 2gb of ram that i cant even remember the manufacturer.
Ok thanks for the effort, but a couple of things, that mobo doesnt support pata or does it? and i'm sorry but i forgot to mention i only need a SSD i have several HDD's from my old system that i will put into the new system as well as a burner, so i don't need that either.
