I need a budget pc for my church. I need to keep the budget at £330 excluding the os but this is only a target. the main use of this pc will primarily be powerpoint, recording with audacity and playing videos - all on a projector so must have extended desktop. as none of these tasks are very demanding your input on the best pc i can build for that budget would be helpful. I want this to be upgradable in the future but to last a couple years till that is required. i also have no preference between intel and amd but i gather amd are much cheaper.
amd may be cheaper per core ect but its not always better for the money. Your mobo needs a bios upgrade to use the cpu. I'd get an intel i3 108.68 (inc vat?), msi mobo 57.30 (with vat). There is no need for the gpu (another point of failure). and ram for 27.70 (all inc vat).
I missed the dual monitor part my bad. As for the intel vs amd. I'm an intel guy but typically i3s are better for stuff with a single thread. Your mobo would need to change because it needs a bios update for the amd cpu.
it would do just fine the only downside is that its not HDCP compliant which means you wouldn't be able to play blu rays but regular dvd's and normal hd content through youtube or something would show.
