Alright everyone, i've got someone who wants me to build them a "family" pc. I'm not looking for a lot of profit off this build, only asking 65 for labor because it will be the first build i've ever done. I asked them a few questions and this is what they said: 1. Do you need: Monitor, Mouse, Keyboard, and/or Speakers? Monitor/Speakers 2. What will you be doing with the computer? Gaming, business, school work, internet browser, etc? school/internet/music 3. What is your budget? i dont know for sure 4. Do you prefer Windows Vista or XP? the most up to date 5. Are you on a time limit? (The building processes can take anywhere from a week to almost a month to get in all parts, put it together, and resolve any problems that may occur during the build.) no time limit Alright, so I went to newegg and decided to put together a list of stuff and here is what I put together for her, tell me what you think: Motherboard 64.99 - GIGABYTE GA-G41M-ES2L LGA 775 Intel G41 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - N82E16813128388 processor 69.99 - Intel Pentium E5200 Wolfdale 2.5GHz 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - N82E16819116072 processor grease 8.99 - Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound - N82E16835100007 ram 39.99 - PNY 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model MD4096KD2-800 - N82E16820178219 hard drive 47.99 - Western Digital Caviar SE WD2500AAJS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive - N82E16822136113 OPTIONAL BUT SUGGESTED 2nd hard drive 33.99 - Western Digital Caviar SE WD800AAJS 80GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive - N82E16822136195 cd/dvd 22.99 - LG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner Black SATA Model GH22NS30 - N82E16827136152 case 54.99 - COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UB Black /Blue Aluminum Bezel , SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - N82E16811119047 power supply 69.99 (currently with 10.00 instant rebate so 59.99) - Thermaltake Purepower W0100RU 500W ATX 12V 2.0 Power Supply - N82E16817153052 OPTIONAL - video card 59.99 (currently with 15.00 instant rebate so 44.99) - PNY VCG94512GXEB GeForce 9400 GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - N82E16814133247 Building requirement 3.50 - Rosewill RTK-002 Anti-Static Wrist Strap - N82E16899261005 Operating System 99.99 - Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit - N82E16832116488 Montior 109.99 - ASUS VK193D Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor (with built-in web cam)- N82E16824236060 Speakers 23.99 - Logitech S-220 17 Watts 2.1 Multimedia Speaker System - N82E16836121014 WITH OPTIONAL HARDWARE - no extended hardware warranties: Subtotal: 671.36 Shipping: 36.22 labor: 65.00 TOTAL: 772.58 WITH OPTIONAL HARDWARE (with 2 year extended warranties on all applicable hardware except speakers): Subtotal: 671.36 Extended Warranty Fee:113.93 Shipping:36.22 labor: 65.00 TOTAL: 886.51 WITHOUT OPTIONAL HARDWARE (no extended hardware warranties): Subtotal: 592.38 Shipping: 33.01 labor: 65.00 TOTAL: 690.39 WITHOUT OPTIONAL HARDWARE (with 2 year extended warranties on all applicable hardware) Subtotal:592.38 Extended Warranty Fee:87.95 Shipping:33.01 labor: 65.00 TOTAL: 778.34 IF YOU DON'T WANT TO LOOK ALL THE HARDWARE UP, I PUT IT ALL ON A WISH LIST - http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=6728669 Click to Maximize I told her it may be a bit much for everything she wants and that I could lower the price a bit with different parts if she needed it, but that's what I recommended for her.
