Hi my mum asked me to build a PC for her it's my first build.
If i could just work out which componants to get i can use the walk through on this site to build it.
PC is for surfing internet, email, photo storage, school work,
some online games not big games.
Im in Australia so I will probly buy from mwave, PC superstore somewhere like that
spend upto $1000. AU
a shop quote was $1100. with GIGABYTE GA MA77Ot UD3 for an idea of what system they were looking at.
I will need OS (windows 7)
Ive got a screen, keyboard, mouse, speakers
can you get a case with 4 USB or do i need a USB card?

thanks

Hi and welcome fellow AUSSIE! :)

The case with 4 USB - do you mean just 4 USB ports in total or are you looking at 4 ports on the front of the case?

Also if you give me an idea what state/suburb you're in I might be able to recommend a place to get the stuff from.

Cheers

Prices from umart.com.au go to there site and order the parts online then go to their store and pay by cash when you pick up your parts, simple.

That pc will do everything you listed above, the Graphics card is decent enough to play games, obviously not a crysis card, but will do decent in games.

That pc is decent, but I think his better off doing what I said as that PC will last longer and probably suits he needs abit more. At the end of the day you probably know it doesn't matter on what we list, it matters on what people can afford I guess :).

I personally would think a mix and match between the parts... That's what I like about System Building. :) There's so many different combinations, and it's fun to pick and choose.
