My mother needed a computer to simply surf the web. I had some extra parts laying around so decided to through them together. Plus took the time to picture it. Hope you enjoy.
I thinking about putting a RX 480 in to see how it runs.
Not bad for surfing the web :p Definitely better off with this than a refurbished Dell with a Core 2 Duo, amirite? +1
This looks like a featured build to me.That photography is god-tier.
Nice basic PC.
Or a "Basiq PC" wink, wink , nudge, nudge, it's because the psu is an antic Basiq power :D
Lol! Good one.
AM1s have a special place in my heart. Oh right, I have two AM1 builds, so no wonder why I love seeing other AM1 computers. I'm certain your mom is happy to web surf and sounds like you will be poking the AM1 yourself for other reasons. Yes, I can confirm that they can game too, despite they aren't design for it, but surprisingly they can. Plus one.
Does it run Minesweeper?
You've definitely got a good eye for photography. More nice pictures.
I mean.... it's really easy to use ~6 GB on Google Chrome, a number that can be higher if you are someone who leaves a lot of stuff open. Shouldn't this have 8GB? Everything else is pretty solid; even has an SSD...
Nah, most basic pc users don't open enough tabs to warrant that. I built a system with a G3258 and 4gb of ddr3 ram and it does just fine. if you're using 6gb on chrome you suck at closing tabs. You could also just find a lighter web browser as well.
I'm obviously not his Mom to speak to that.
[Insert canny 'but I AM his dad' joke here]
That is a Basic PC that no-one expected.
How many frames do you get on Minecraft with it?
not positive, but if i had to guess id say around 696969696969696969696969696969696969696
GHG did that with a Pentium D 945.
It was......... interesting.
Underpowered? I've got one: Macbook Air 13 inch, Early 2015, 1.6 ghz DUAL CORE, Intel Integrated Graphics 6000, DDR3 1600 4 GB. And it's $700! I don't understand why my mom just HAD to buy a mac... Should've built my own.
At Microcenter when I bought it they had a bundle pricing which brought down to price of the CPU
