Hello all, I am seeking advice on a pc build for my parents after the old one died in a fire (not literally). I have a buddget of €400 (Ireland). This machine will only be used for email and general web browsing but with all that said I want the machine to be at least a small bit future proof.
The system I am going for will be based around a micro atx motherboard with amd apu this is this list of parts I had in mind
- ASRock FM2A55M-DGS micro atx motherboard €47
- AMD A6 5400k APU €67
- Kingston Hyper x Blu 4gb 1600MHz pc3-12800 Ram €35
- Coolermaster elite power 400W PSU €38
- Sesgate 500GB Sata-600 7200rpm hard drive €49.
The old PC is a compaq presario sr5129uk (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01083559&tmp_track_link=ot_faqs/top_issues/en_us/c01083559/loc:2&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3454923#N593)
I intend on using the case from this for the build and also use the dvd drive. The hardware I have listed is under €240 but I am allowing the remainder for extra fans, a new case and a disk drive if they are required where the old parts prove uncompatible.
I am open to sugestions as Im not 100% on what I'm trying to do will work out and I know there are loads of you out there with far more techinical insight into what I hope to achive here.
This will also be a first build for myself so any advise/tips that you can provide is welcomed.
Thank you for your time and all feedback is appreciated.
