Looking to build a PC for my wife. I used Marest's sample builds to get an idea of what I want but I'm missing the mark on budget. I'm sure I've overcompensated in some areas for what she needs. She's not a gamer and her activity is mostly Facebook/Facebook games/YouTube/Movies/web browsing/Office. A couple must haves for her are dual monitors and a speedy computer. I have hopes that once she has her own computer I could tempt her into playing some non intensive games like WoW...etc...
Budget - About $500 Resolution - 1680 x 1050 Games / Settings Desired - Basic games (WoW etc) / Low - Med Any other intensive software or special things you do (Frequent video encoding, 3D modeling, etc) - N/A Country - US Parts that can be reused - N/A Do you need an OS? - Yes Do you need peripherals (e.g. monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers, etc)? - No
You can save a few dollars by going to a 500 generation graphics card, as well as using a mini atx board instead of an atx.
As well as a smaller case as well, though if your wife likes the look of that one then no worries.
