Really need some help/Ideas for 2 pc's (HELP WANTED)

HyperDrive
  • 37 months ago

I need a cheap computer that works like a high-end computer. The reason why is because I Really REALLY want to build a 7000$+ computer and i never built a computer before; I don't have much money (around 10-75$), so my mom agreed to help me if i can first prove to her that i can even build a computer. So here is my plan, i ask you guys and girls for suggestions for 2 builds and then ask my mom from which of the 2 price points she is willing to pay for the cheap build. What i'm asking of you guys/girls is can you build me at least one part list (out of 2) under some rules i make.

The first price point for the cheapest pc is 470$. remember you can use an fsx psu to lower the price a little. don't have to worry about OS price. must have fans unless there are stock ones. must have 1 terabyte(s) storage and if you can manage to get an ssd in there that will be fantastic but not required (if the one terabyte drive is not the ssd any amount of ssd storage will be great). must have a graphics card that can at least play good 1080p on medium settings.
No hdd from seagate though.

The second price point for the pc is 710$ top. the 710$ pc must have a good looking case. must be a HTPC or Mini ITX Tower. don't have to worry about OS price. must have pwm static pressure fans. remember that any case with a power supply may help lower the price. Must have at least 1tb of storage(if you can fit an ssd in there, again, that would be great). No seagate drives. Must have wifi. Must have a good graphics card. (optional) if you can do this, that would be fantastic and you would be a hero,(WARNING) this is very hard but if your up for the challange then here it is. I would like an i7-7700k in the 710$ pc.

Please take your time making the build if you are for i am in no rush, but thank you all who has taken time out of there day to help me with my problems. Thank you
