Here's my cheap build for a neighbor, he just wanted something for internet use tho I still wanted to offer him a build with a semi-reasonable spec hence the 8gig ram and ssd.
I think it's all pretty self explanatory, 5150 is a nice budget quad core that's eminently capable for internet/general use/SOHO etc, 1080p youtube is no problem and even some low level gaming as per some yt vids. I was tempted to go with the 3850 as apparently that's still capable for his needs but as the 5150 is only $6 more than it I thought might as well go with the more "powerful" option :-D
Cheapest matx/mitx am1 mobo has hdmi out which I wanted so he has an easy hook up to his tv if he wants, only 2x sata3 ports and no usb3 header (only on the rear panel) but neither of those points are deal breakers imo, especially for the price :D
I wanted 8gig so he has plenty of ram for chrome/ff tabs and that's enough to allocate up to 2gig for the gpu portion if he ever wants to dabble in some light gaming, on reflection I kinda wish I'd spent the extra $2 on some lower latency ram but eh, I don't think that's super important for his use tbh.
A ssd to provide a fast booting machine and all round faster responding windows environment. 120gig is more than enough for what he needs tho the drive is a little older than I thought when I ordered it, but real world performance is close enough across most modern ssds these days so hopefully it won't turn out to be a complete dog coughv300cough, maybe I'll go for the trion100 next time?
Yeah I know I know I know it's never recommended to get a case with an included psu but given the minimal power draw nature of the build I figure the chance of the psu getting strained is effectively non-existent. I wanted a case a little smaller than the standard pc box and given that the cheapest [large] case w/ psu onsite is $35 once you take delivery into account I'm ok with the deal for the rosewill.
I've got an old unused win7 disc around so I'm gonna use that then get the win10 upgrade for him too.
For under $200 delivered I'm pretty happy with it, hopefully he will be too :D
edit. built this a week or so back, I've set the prices to what I paid at the time.
Neighbour is very happy with it so far.
