Looking for a new PC for our office. They wanted to go out and spend $750+ at Best Buy when I told them I could probably throw something together for much less that would more than suffice. Any input towards parts to purchase is appreciated.
Budget: Not really a budget issue. Just want what is needed and will let the budget fall into place. Location: Southern California (USA) Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Lite office use. Office / Documents / Lite Browsing Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): N/A Operating System required: Yes
Just need something that will be used for lite office work as the 10-year old Dell is just getting way too outdated to make use of. Integrated graphics, 4 GB RAM, etc. would all be more than enough.
Here are some ideas, let me know what you think.
CPU: Intel Pentium G3258 With all the good feedback I see, and the $50 price tag I feel like we could not go wrong with this.
Storage: Looking at a Seagate 1TB SSHD. I have one of these on my rendering / gaming rig at home and have no complaints. I don't feel like a SSD is absolutely necessary in a situation like this, but amount of store would have to be more than 120GB making a SSD kinda out of the question. For the low SSHD price, I feel like this would do the job. Let me know what you think.
MOBO: Open to recommendations.
PSU: Open to recommendations
RAM: 8GB would be way more than overkill, so one again, open to recommendations.
Any input is very much appreciated.
Thanks a ton in advance.
