    Post Recommendations (Normal Pc)

    Hey there guys. I'm trying to build my first PC. I need recommendations from the pros-(you guys)
    I will be using this computer for browsing, video watching, music. Basic stuff. Maybe some games now
    and then, but not hard core gaming.
    My question is which parts would build the best pc for my budget?
    If any more info is required feel free to comment. Thanks!

    Things that I have already:
    1.Monitor
    2.Keyboard & Mice
    3.Speakers
    4.Dell Dimension E521(Would it be better to use this as my case? Also the hard drive is working.)
    Link: http://www.dell.com/us/en/dfh/deskto...21&cs=22&s=dfh

    My Budget would be $500-600$ u.s dollars.

    Welcome to PureOC!

    If your looking into a Dell Dimension, I would not recommend it. Prebuilts are not much value as you can build one yourself with better performance for the same price.

    Check these 2 links out:

    The 1st link is how to select what hardware and the other is how to build a computer. We will assist you in any of your needs.

    I would strongly suggest you invest in a new case. The OEM cases by such players as Dell, HP, etc...
    are configured for the components designed into their configuration of parts. You will be hard pressed to install a decent PSU in the area designed into that case for example.

    Also, those cases have poor airflow.

    Due to my vacations in Argentina, I was unable to reply to this thread.
    I am now back.
    Thank you all for taking your time to help me out, but I came out with a build. I just need Feed Back.
    Here are the parts. As for a keyboard, mice, monitor and speaker I don' t need because I already have them.

    Great price but ixnay the PSU. Last place you want to skimp. try this PSU. It has a 34 amp rail for potential GPU upgrade and IMO better.

    Thank you is that all? I am not really educated much about power supply units.
    I'll Google it up and learn about them. I figured the more watts the better.
    I guess I'm wrong thank you for your help.
    Appreciate your help.

    Quality on PSU and AMPS on the rails means much more. Last place you want to skimp. XFX makes good power supplies. Read reviews on hardware if you are ever uncertain. Pro reviews. Good luck.
