Dunno. I've been thinking about just going for Core i3. It should still be within my budget, and I want to get the best possible, even if something a little cheaper might be "good enough." Google results seem to indicate that it's generally better than some comparable stuff from AMD (correct me if I'm wrong), and the price difference from what I can tell so far is pretty negligible. RAM seems to be quite cheap so I'm not too worried about that. A 1TB Barracuda is like $80.

 

I'm not sure just what kind of power supply I'd need? I saw a Corsair CX430 for $17 after rebate?

 

I think the thing I understand the least is how to pick a good motherboard.

Do you know how to build a computer? If you do, then it should be straight forward and will get you better upgradeability for parts and a bit more performance. A pre made laptop also works. There are some decent $400 pc's out there right now.

 

Do you game or want to a tiny bit? Then AMD A8 or A10 depending on budget. 

Just performance? i3 Ivy Bridge

 

For such a small budget and need, a $40 case with built in PSU would do fine. Or if you can get a free case from a friends old un used or broken dell, then yes, that $17 PSU (or just re using the one found in many computers) will be fine. You can get a free case or not spend money on a case and PSU if you ask around. Most old desktops use 300-450W PSU's with bad efficency but nothing that would affect a sub $400 computer.

 

At such a low price. It is a brain easy task to choose one. You should only use newegg or tiger direct or amazon of course. That already limits what you have. I recommend newegg, and then you look at what slots and ports you want on it. It should be around $50. Micro ATX at this price point gives better price to performance than a $50 ATX mobo.

@Joe

Why would it be a good deal? It's $70?

The only things I see are official ones but those are the only ones I'm looking for.

@Manveru

i3 3220 =$120

G Skill 8GB =$25

OCZ Vertex SSD 60GB =$55

1 TB HDD =$70 

$50 Rosewill case with PSU =$45 (or free if you can find one)

Asrock H61M LGA 1155 motherboard =$66

CD/DVD Drive =$20 or free if you can find or have one.

 

=$401

 

If you know how to do it? This will be faster than a $400 laptop you will be able to find by a long shot.

I don't actually know the pricing on an i3 but if FX-4100 is about 70 here on sale it must be dirt cheap in the US xD

But right. Mixing. Finding out of the software you'd be using supports multi-core operations would help also on choosing a card.

Thanks for the tips. I've never built a computer before, but I was watching some YouTube videos last night and it looks like something I should be able to do. My uncle I think has built lots of computers before so I can ask him for help if I need it.

 

I don't game, nor do I ever plan to. I just want to be able to handle pro audio software. My several year old "thin and light" type lappy often chokes at the sight of a few reverb or delay plugins.

 

I don't think I know anyone who would have an old case or PSU lying around, but I'll see if I can ask. Otherwise I'm still looking around for cases too at the moment.

 

Here's the stuff I found so far that seems about right (assuming I didn't make any big mistakes with incompatible stuff) and within price range:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157303 (mobo)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115077 (cpu)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314 (ram)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148697 (hdd)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204 (dvd burner)

 

That's only $300 so far. If I can manage a case and psu for cheap, I'll probably add another or larger HDD. Or how big a deal is SSD really?

 

EDIT: Haven't read you're other post(s) yet. Looking now.

Great job on the mobo, I only saw some $66 one but the one you found is much better.

The Ivy Birdge i3 3220 is only $10 more and has better performance and graphics. Not that much but why not buy a new one?

 

That ram is the one I found

3TB with good feedback is for the SAME price as that one right now.Feedback matters for HDD's and SDD's

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148844

 

This raises the price by $20 but you get much more

 

An SDD will raise performance BY A LOT. They are only $59 for 60GB's which is enough for Windows and some programs

 

If you can get a case with a PSU in it used, you are set. Some motherboards require a 24 pin connector though which is a problem maybe. Most old Dell PSU's however SHOULD come with 24 pins but look to make sure. The mobo you found is 24 pin. Some mobo's will tell you if you can just use 20 pin and it will still run, this changes from board to board.

 

If you can ask your school and find a case(not too small, the small ones use different board formats) and a working PSU inside, you can just use that.

 

With that, you will have a banging computer for $400 considering you already have a monitor and everything.

I'll take a look at the 3220. Building a new list now...

 

I've never done this before. It's kind of fun actually, haha.
