Ok, long story short here. My bro-in-law wants a new PC, as his antiquated P4 with 1GB of memory isnt cutting it anymore. I offered to upgrade it a bit, but he says if he is going to spend money he wants something newer.

I need the essentials only:
Mobo (can have IGP)
CPU
Ram
PSU
Hard drive

Uses:
Paying bills online
Emails
Fantasy football
NO GAMING

So lets see what you can come up with. Keep in mind this is something I may have to maintain, so please no poorly rated parts;)

Thanks in advance for your time and effort:toast:

are you close to a microcenter? they have great deals on AMD cpus with motherboard combos

I priced out a Athlon X4 3.0GHz with a 785 mATX mobo for a little over $300, not including $40 worth of rebates
the rest is as follows:
4GB DDR3 RAM
500GB Samsung HD
400W OCZ stealthxstream II
Xigmatek Asgard II

been deciding whether to bite on this or not as an additional rig

Upgradeable room, motherboard to a P45 mATX board with 1 PCIE slot. An ATi 4770 or 5430 would be a cheap vga alternative as well.

Just save the $60 by going with the i3 550 for $114. It is the same processor, minus turbo, which won't really make a difference in the applications he's looking at.

ohhh those two are nice. I think I can get away with $450-ish, but I will get with him to clear it all. I knew there was a reason I asked here instead of doing this all by myself and failing;)

Good call with the edit NT;)

Meh, theres ways of trimming that build. Cheaper ram, used HDD, lesser PSU... anyway you shape it it's still a heck of alot better than the P4. :)

Not really looking to go used. I want RMA-able hardware as this isn't something I really want to see too often. He does fairly well with his PC, and he doesn't get too much in the way of virus' or malware, so I shouldn't have to see it that much, but I don't want to come out of packet to help fix things of they flake out either.

I like the 1156 build, but mainly that I honestly don't know much about AMD anymore. Seeing their procs is like useless as I don't know what they are capable of anyways. Time to do some Googling and see what AMD is capable of with the low end to mid range chips.

@ asrock...the 760G thats pretty old as far as AMD chipsets, yeah?

I have a couple newer ones around the house (PSUs). So either this or Mlees 1156 build are looking to be tops of the list so far.

Hia Sneeky !

For a little more you can get something with an Amd 850 southbridge. USB3 and SATA3 are future proof and you'll have a better chance at unlocking a cpu. :cool:
Do you know how to tell a Propus from a Deneb ?

While thats a good way to go for me who is looking to tweak and gain free stuff, I think for this build I would be better off leaving things stock as to not incur an oddities that might show up over the long term;)

It leaves your options open in case his needs change. :D Some of the Amd chipsets have added sideport memory for the onboard Gpu, btw...

Holy crap, a hexa core for email?

If someone was going to be banging on my door for support I'd just want to be something simple with good quality components.



2.8 GHz Sempron
Asus 880G Micro-ATX
4GB memory
320GB Samsung F4
Asus optical disk
Rosewill Micro-ATX case
300w SeaSonic 80+ PSU
800RPM Scythe S-Flex case fan
Windows 7 Home

I think that would be a very decent basic computer.

A hexacore would definitively be overkill, but definitively AWESOME lol.

I'd suggest the hexacore just because it is so much more worth it, the resell value will kick the lga 1156 ASS and I love overkill. did I mention that it would totally be kick ass? Also, if he keeps his comp 10 years, who knows what he could get in to, or if he gives it to his son or something.

Also upgradability would be very easy and good, and maintenance shouldn't be anymore more than the i3
