New build, suggestions welcome
It's been several years since I've dabbled with building my own PC, but the time has come to build a new one...
Problem is, I have lost all feeling for the market, and I have no idea what is the best stuff at the moment. I know Intel has made pretty great strides since I built my last PC, when AMD was ruling the market.
So, help me out, if you feel like it! My budget is anywhere between $400 & ... I dunno, $750?... we'll see, lol.
I've already got the case, monitor, keyboard, mouse, and OS/software.
plus many components from my old build that could be used if necessary, though they're probably worthless.
I don't need this computer to be set up as a high-end gaming system. It will mainly be for business & office applications, internet browsing, online streaming of videos, and some light-duty CAD work. Also I'll need to make sure I have ample hard drive space (500GB minimum). If it's set up for that and gaming would function on it, hey cool, all the better.
Feel free to ask any questions if you need more info to help formulate a build. You guys and girls are the experts :-)
Thanks in advance.
