Default Requesting Ideas for a build - 08-05-2013, 20:52 | posts: 65

So I'm being asked to help build a pc. The budget is $800(us).

It's not going to be used for any games or rendering.
Main use is to run quick, smooth and seamless transitions, and use to control a
sound system (Auditorium)

Good airflow/staying cool is a must.

You guys build and put down the budget, and I'll pitch the ideas to the guys.

Thanks guys!

PS: I'd like an SSD for boot and the main sound control program

What OS are you planning on using for this build? Because I have a possible build for you and I need to know what OS.

Any of the windows. I don't think the guys I'm pitching the build to understand any other OSes.

Windows 7 is preferable, but they might go Windows 8.

Thanks!

Thanks Fender!

@pill
I don't know, they only asked me for the build. Since it's not a build for me, I don't know what they will do on the software side.

Np,

An I3 Cpu even though it is only 3rd generation is still enough power for a sound system and anything else they are doing with it.

Well, because the request was relayed through my brother, he asked me to help build for them. I'll just use this as a base pc for them, and if there's a specific request regarding software or extra hardware, I may be coming back to ask you gurus for some more opinion.

for now, thanks a bunch!
