Here's what I wanted posted.
Hey guys, building my Dad a new computer since his is ~10 years old. I've not kept up with hardware at all since upgrading my PC, so I wanted some opinions on my build before I go for it. He just needs it for general use (email, documents, photos etc).
Here's what I've got. Total = $237.94
Mobo: MSI FM2-A75MA
Processor: AMD Duel Core @3.4
RAM: Using a stick of 4g DDR3 kingston I have lying around.
PSU: Corsair CX430
or Antec Basiq BP350
HDD: 500GB Barracuda
CD: The cheapest one
Case: Using his old case. Can't remember what it is, but it's an atx.
Video: On board.
I am looking at both PSU. I would love to get the CX430, but it's not in stock and my Dad wants this asap. The Antec has good reviews at the 450+ models, so I assumed the 350 would be reliable as well. Power shouldn't be an issue since I'm using on board graphics.
Thanks guys. Hoping to order today.
Note: I don't use Mail In Rebates.
Also, NCIX is preferred since shipping is so cheap because I live near it. I can potentially go pick up the parts too.
