Building a PC for a friend $800AUS

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): $800 AUD

Country: Australia

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: It will be used as an office computer and watching twich and youtube 

Other details The only restraint apart from the budget is he wants to have a 2 monitor setup, I was thinking of using a ryzen APU then i wont have to but a graphics card but the site i buy off sold out of the chip i had my eye on. now Im not sure what to use. I use www.pccasegear.com to buy what i need, if someone could please suggest a motherboard, CPU and RAM for a cheap office pc that is capable of running 2 video output (dual monitor) 

Lastly i wanted to quickly mention $800 is for the complete build case and all. Any reply's are appreciated, thank you all.

I would go ahead and wait for 4th gen Ryzen APUs so that you can get much much better value than what is currently available. There was a leaked 8 core APU which means that almost certainly there will be a 6 core APU which is what I would recommend going with (If it's decent).

 

For the case and motherboard / general rest of the computer, if you are able to get your hands on this:

https://www.newegg.com/asrock-deskmini-a300w/p/N82E16856158064

Then I would totally use it (assuming it gets updated with support for the APU of course)

You get a power supply, motherboard, case, and wifi all for $150 USD, so around $215 AUD.

You only have to buy your own storage and memory, plus a cooler.

This is what I would recommend for those:

https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-500GB-NAND-NVMe-PCIe/dp/B07J2WBKXF

https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-16gb-260-pin-ddr4-so-dimm/p/N82E16820232724

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B009VCAJ7W

 

All of this in a PCPP (Aus) list looks like this:

So you have around $80 AUS left over for taxes or to buy the next generation of APU (should be out in about two months)


@BlueScope819 so I can see your post

Little bit over budget, you can change the graphics card to a worse version of the GPU.
