Right now I have a 5 year old HP with AMD Dual Core processor. I’m having problems with LAN port, even after adding a new PCI LAN card.
I wouldn’t be able to update an iMac and installing SSD is not an easy task. So, I decided to build a PC on my own.
I will be ordering the following parts in a day for new PC.
|Case||$75||Amazon||Corsair Carbide Series 300R|
|Motherboard||$125||NewEgg||ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77|
|RAM||$49||Amazon||Corsair Vengeance 8 GB ( 2 x 4 GB ) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800)|
|Power Supply||$25||NewEgg||CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 V2|
|Card Reader||$10||NewEgg||SABRENT CRW-UINB 68-in-1 USB 2.0|
|SSD||$69||NewEgg||OCZ Vertex 3 120GB|
|HDD||$107||Amazon||Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 2 TB|
I already have 2 HP 20″ Monitors, Logitech Wireless Mouse, DVD drive.
I might buy a new Keyboard (haven’t decide which one).
Total cost of the above configuration comes to $609.
What do you think about the configuration?
