Parents PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I want to build my parents a PC but I don't know what to put in it. I already know I want an SSD but I don't know about anything else. They don't game, they just right emails and do some spreadsheets. I don't know what would be a good PC for them

ryzen 3/ intel 3 or some used cpu.

Stock cooler, or aftermarket if you want less noise.

Just the one thing you don't cheap out on is the PSU for reliability's sake.

Something like this maybe. Storage can be easily downsized.

 

However, a used i5 or something and some DDR3 would also be more than suitable. The SSD is what really makes these office PCs.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

FX is too power hungry. If anything I'd recommend a quad core FX and something like the GT or 730, but that's all a bit excessive. Anything with an iGPU is more up to the task. DDR3 is a good way to save, so an older Intel CPU would likely be pretty decent.
