Hallo mijn naam is Glen :)

Okay I apologise as I cannot speak Dutch yet. (I'm taking courses elke avond!) I've lived here 4 months now but I love tweakers for the pricing and I try and read as much as I can every day :)

Dutch technical knowledge seems superior to anyone else's I know....

I need help as I've got a budget for 350€ and I need to build a good rig for a friend. I will post this on anandtech as well but I reckon there are some great people here that can help.

I'm sorry if I've posted in the wrong thread.

The PC is for general use, multi office programs, watching videos. A lot of Google chrome tabs etc :) A little games but old ones like AoE II.

I have a spare ATI 1950XTX and IDE DVD drive. I do not have Windows7 and do not want it at the moment. So 2GB I think is enough for him.

This is what I've made on afuture.nl :

AMD Phenom II X2 555 € 87,30
Xigmatek Asgard € 35,00
Samsung 1000GB HDD € 52,90
Kingston 2GB 1333MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM € 33,00
Antec EarthWatts 380Watt € 46,30
Asus M4A785T-M €69,70


Ik hoop dat volgende keer ik in Nederlands kan schrijven :).

Thanks for your help! :*)

Glen

A few days ago a excellent guide was posted on the tweakers.net frontpage. I advise you to take a look at it:

- Dutch version: reviews: Tweakers.net Best Buy Guide: editie november 2010

SinergyX

____(>^^(>0o)>____

Voor amper 20 euro meer kan je al een Dual channel kitje kopen op 4GB
pricewatch: OCZ Gold DDR3 PC3-8500 Low Voltage Dual Channel

Nog 1 keertje.. het is SinergyX, niet SynergyX
Im as excited to be here as a 42 gnome warlock who rolled on a green pair of cloth boots but was given a epic staff of uber awsome noob pwning by accident.

This configuration is cheaper, faster and built for multitasking ('a lot of chrome tabs').
Even with XP 4 gigs of RAM is recommendable.

PS: You won't have to use the 1950XT anymore. The motherboard's got internal graphics.

This actually looks like an affordable setup, almost can't make it cheaper myself.... :) But saying he doesn't need the 1950xt anymore, I'm not so sure because that depends: The 1950XT has got more gaming-power than the on-board HD4200 on that Asrock motherboard, or to be exact: playing games with that onboard gpu is almost impossible (although AoE2 should run). BUT... the 1950XT doesn't support gpu-decoding for high definition video and the coming browser innovations that also depend on gpu. This could be something 2 think about ;)

With that setup he still has about €25,- left from the €350,- budget... The thing I would do is trade the quadcore cpu for a nice dualcore like the pricewatch: AMD Athlon II X2 250, that's saves him about €25,- more. Put that €50,- (with maybe an extra 10 or 20 euros) into an affordable (second hand) videocard and get the best of both worlds ;) The difference between a dual- or quadcore shouldn't be that much for the intended use, plus the better videocard should make up the difference.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

AoE2 should run on almost every graphics card, could be run entirely on a modern processer even.
I agree with the above IF games are important, if they are not I would prefere a quad core processor because that affects everyday use, a better GPU only helps in games. So it really depends on what type of user your friend is, will he play modern games if he could?

Hallo Glen en welkom op GoT :W

As you may have seen on the frontpage of our site, we provide a bi-monthly Best Buy Guide for our users. To assist the users who want to build their own system but still need some aditional advice, we run several topics where users can help eachother out. An overview of these topics can be found here: Best Buy Guide overzichtstopic.

Now, there is one catch... We only allow Dutch on our forums. So please do your best to keep writing in our native language, you'll learn fast enough ;)
