Core i5 2500, 16GB RAM, SSD boot drive, 1TB HD, Radeon HD 6850 video
This page contains the particulars concerning a custom-built PC I am putting together. The target was to build a completely new, medium- to high-end machine for about $1000. I took a fair bit of time to assemble the parts as I was doing careful research on components and waiting for great prices on them.
|Core i5 2500||intel.com||Newegg||$194.99|
|SSD 330||intel.com||Amazon||$144.99||Product Details. A newly released SSD. This item, being new, doesn't have a competitive price but has exceptional performance for the price-point. I needed to finish off the build ASAP due to my current PC starting to die.|
|7200.14||seagate.com||Amazon||$99.99||The Barracuda rev 14 has exceptional performance, beyond what its price-point indicates. Data sheet|
|Total Cost:||$978.42||Coming in under budget I spent about $20 to buy a very quiet replacement fan for the front of the case. I can't stand those light-up fans!|
