Solved Which build is the best? Tags: Prebuilt Systems Last response: February 21, 2013 4:11 PM in Systems Share boldintrepid February 21, 2013 1:24:47 PM I need a PC under or around $500 that can play HD video with no lag or stutter. I plan on using two displays. I do not intend to play games on it. I've been preferring a i5 as it is quad core... but I'm not sure if that is necessary for HD playback So far, I've seen this HP p7-1380t and this CyberPower Anything I can add or delete for the CyberPower to make it around 500? Or is there a totally new option that would work for me? Thanks More about : build Reply to boldintrepid AMD Radeon February 21, 2013 1:31:56 PM vote for cyberpower... hp built is slightly underpowered... comes with lower version i5.... AND 1333Mhz Ram which is actually stupid for system that is using integrated graphic intel HD 2500 Reply to AMD Radeon boldintrepid February 21, 2013 1:39:46 PM AMD Radeon said:vote for cyberpower... hp built is slightly underpowered... comes with lower version i5....

Get the answer Best solution AMD Radeon February 21, 2013 2:02:05 PM no need graphic card, use intel iGPU which is actually good for HD playback use the cheapest case, use cheap HDD Reply to AMD Radeon boldintrepid February 21, 2013 3:46:18 PM Cheapest case and HDD are selected. I thought the dedicated card would be needed but since you said the iGPU is good enough, I'll stick with that. DAT SHIPPING THO!! Reply to boldintrepid boldintrepid February 21, 2013 4:11:41 PM Ok, I've built something that hopefully shipping won't cost that much. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/EZ6X Anything I need to add or change?
