New PC for the office

Recommended Posts

I need some help putting together a complete build for the office. I wanna put together something as cheap as possible, but be pretty up to date system. I won't be doing any OC'ing or gaming. I must have a very nice display and wireless keyboard and mouse combo. Here is what I got so far... need help and recommendations for the rest.

Unless your office requires a lot of cpu power there's no reason to spring for a $125 processor when an X2 3800+ is more than enough. Personally I'd just get a single core AM2 for an office environment.

 

The memory can stay the same, should work just fine.

 

This Biostar motherboard has built-in graphics that should be more than enough for your needs.

 

To keep it cheap, this Thermaltake power supply should be enough juice for the system outlined above, unless you start adding a lot of hard drives, a graphics card, etc, etc.

Onboard video enough for 1680x1050? wow.

 

Easily, I ran 1920x1200 on my old Biostar. If I remember correctly I even played a 1080p movie on a single core Sempron on that board without too many issues.

 

I mean, obviously it won't work out if you want to game at that resolution, but for common Windows apps it works just fine.

 

Edit: And it still has a PCI-e slot if you find you need something better in the future.

I would just get a dell if it's for an office, they need a warranty and Dell's are cheap.

second that totally for Office. Let someone else take care of the support. Just get 2GB RAM and be done with it (use our link possibly? lol)

 

 

btw, I'm still waiting for one of the boneheads that are on staff to tell me they can test this damn P35-DS3R board that is still sitting next to my server...

What's wrong with the GigaByte board? Stutter on desktop? :)

It's a board that Chris sent me along with 2GB DDR2 and a Q6600, and I think a 7800GT, and I set it all up for him, overclocked it to 3Ghz, put it in the OCDB, packed it all back up and shipped it to him...and I guess the board wouldn't boot again when he got it. He bought a replacement and sent this one back to me to see if I could bring it back to life...and I bet I could...except I don't have any Core2 cpu's nor any 775 cpu's left to test with it.

 

So been waiting for one of the mods to tell me they have a Core2 and some time to take a look at it. Beyond Chris saying it doesn't boot, I have no idea as I've not even pulled it out of the box since it arrived a couple of weeks ago.
