$730 Office/Productivity Live Build

philip Oct. 21, 2015

Join us Thursday 2pm Central time for our weekly live stream, where we'll be putting together Jenny's office build.

After a few (rather expensive, cough) gaming and rendering systems, it's time to build a more modest system for general office and productivity software use. Jenny handles our retailer relationships, and with the move to the new office we wanted to put together a new system for her. She's not an avid gamer, so we decided to skip external graphics and go with the CPU on-board GPU chipset instead. However, we didn't want it to be a plain ugly box, so we spent a bit more for the nice Silverstone case. Here's the full part list:
