So, family friend who does contracting needs to look at bule prints etc.
He needed to do quotes, and his 19" Monitor wasn't cutting it. He couldn't accurately do measurements.
He was looking to get something like a 32" screen or something like that. I knew that it would have to be 1440p so he could see the prints in high definition.
Hopped on the local website for Memory Express. Saw a BenQ that was on sale for $600 Canadian, he agreed to it.
However, the PC he had I knew would not power that screen. It had no digital outputs, VGA only.
So we buy a GT 610 to upgrade his PC, it doesn't fit the case of his PC.
I decide to open it up too see what i could salvage. I wasn't expecting much, it looked pretty old and was some Dell ITX.
I was shocked to find a Intel 120gb SSD ($120 Canadian) and a i5-4590! ($280 Canadian). Somebody had upgraded the bloody thing!
So I came up with this build list:
CPU: Intel Core i5-4590 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor (Purchased For $0.00) CPU Cooler: ARCTIC Alpine 11 Plus Fluid Dynamic Bearing CPU Cooler ($20.62 @ Newegg Canada) Motherboard: MSI H81M-P33 Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($44.00) (refurbished) Memory: Some Brand... (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (Purchased For $0.00) Storage: Intel Pro 2500 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (Purchased For $0.00) Video Card: Asus GeForce GT 610 1GB Video Card ($59.85 @ Vuugo) Case: Cooler Master N200 MicroATX Mid Tower Case ($57.73 @ NCIX) Power Supply: EVGA 450W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply ($39.00) Total: $221.20 (Canadian)
Went back to Memory Express and built the PC.
