Thread: Building Computer For Friend

  1. #1
    I am currently searching the internet for parts to build my friend a computer for $1000 or less.

    So far I have this that im going to get:

    Motherboard & CPU Combo B - With Intel Pentium 4 Processor - 800MHz FSB
    Warranty - 1 Year
    Intel P4 3.0GHz Socket 478 512k (800MHz)
    512MB PC3200 DDR (Atlas Precision)
    Pretest Motherboard & CPU - Install Fan & Set CPU
    none
    2 System Case Fans
    Artic Silver Thermal Compound
    420 Watt ATX Power Supply (P4 / AMD Certified)
    MSI 865PE-NEO2-LS - INTEL 865PE w/ Serial ATA
    Thermaltake - P4 Spark 7 +

    That toal is 609.53. This includes the motherboard,processor,memory,cpu fan,powersupply, and thermaltake right? ust making sure im reading it right. He already has a burner,dvd player, soundcard,hard drive,and ethernet card he wants to use for the system. I need to find a good case for this system to.

    cabling if any is needed? maybe go with some rounded cables, they help airflow and alot easyer to keep wiring tidy with them aswell.
