It's Christmas so I plan on building a cheap computer for my brothers to use. Budget strap but the only thing they really plan on playing on it is minecraft so that should be easily met. Also planning on using linux to keep the price down. I just upgraded my current computer to a 7850 so I will be reusing my old gts 450 in this build.
Approximate Purchase Date: tonight or tomorrow
Budget Range: $250 strict
System Usage from Most to Least Important: general usage, minecraft, tf2
Parts Not Required: monitor(1080p television), OS (ubuntu), video card(gts 450)
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com
Parts Preferences: no preference
SLI or Crossfire: no
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
Additional Comments: Is it possible to install linux via flash drive or would a CD/DVD drive be necessary
Has a windows phone so minecraft is a no go for for the phone. Also thanks for the info about the supported memory speed, probably will stick with the same ram though due to it being cheap.
Also about the DVD drive, to install linux can I simply download it to a flash drive from my main computer and install it to this new build or would a CD/DVD be the better/supported option?
I'm afraid that I'm on a strict $250 budget so I can't cough up the extra money for the pentium.
I was looking at that case and was in a toss up between the two, I suppose I will ask my brothers which one they prefer the looks of.
Is the extra money for the Corsair necessary, or would this be suitable http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I guess you could call me a fan of antec
