New office & work build

Hi,

I'm looking to build a system for my boss, he wants a very strong computer that will do everything, he mostly uses office programs, but tends to have a lot of files and programs that make his system slow. He also uses remote desktop if that's relevant.

It has to include everything, windows professional, Mouse & Keyboard, and a good monitor.

The budget is flexible, I've asked him to give me a number and he said $2,000.

This is my build (All from Newegg-$1,310):

  1. go with the 650 gtx or 7750 for less wattage/same performance/less price (if there is not gonna be any gamming).
    Buy a 2TB green hdd.
    Buy the XFX 450w it will be enough.
    And that´s all.

    I'd just avoid the 650 entirely - NVIDIA makes no good GPU below the $130 range. The Radeon 7770 would be a good choice for working with multiple displays.

    I'd also recommend the Seasonic S12 II 430W power supply as it will handle everything you need.

    I'd also suggest putting a bit more into the case - the Antec One is good, but something like the NZXT Phantom 410 will definitely impress clients.
  3. Still didn't get it, here is an updated one, what do you guys think?
    Also i will need a monitor, any recommendations?
