$250 Computer Upgrade Parts List

If you already have a computer and would like to upgrade it, this is a great starting point.

This computer upgrade uses the same basic components as the $500 computer.  The difference is that you don't have to buy the hard drive, DVD drive, monitor, keyboard and mouse.  If you want to upgrade your computer, you already have these components as part of your current computer.  The externals are universal and standard so your monitor, keyboard and mouse will work without any problems.  The hard drive and DVD from your existing computer can be either IDE or SATA. Both the Intel and AMD motherboards have for 2 IDE controllers and 4 SATA II controllers.

The reason for replacing your case is that a lot of computers you buy pre-built come with a non standard case and power supply.  Replacing the case and power supply get rids of any compatibility problems and gives you a fresh start, while saving you money vs building completely from scratch with new drives and externals.

Intel Pentium G3220 3.0GHz Dual-Core

Newegg.com

$69.99

We have chosen a solid performing CPU. This CPU will keep your system speedy for years to come without braking the bank.  It's a dual core which means you can have multiple things going on at once and it will split the load between the 2 CPU cores.  It's like having 2 CPU's in 1 and it's a must going forward. Check out the CPU component lesson for more on CPU features and specifications to look for.

Notes

AMD FX-4300 3.8GHz

Newegg.com

$109.99

For the AMD based system we have also chosen a solid performer.  You may notice the speed in megahertz is faster than the Intel CPU.  3.8GHz vs 3.0GHz for the Intel.  It is also a Quad Core compared to the Intel CPU which is a Dual Core.  This will result in about equal performance to the Intel CPU. Check out the CPU component lesson for an explanation of this performance difference. This CPU is also dual core, like the Intel, so it's a solid performer for you every day tasks.

Notes

MSI 970A-G46 AM3+ Motherboard

Newegg.com

 

 

$79.99

For the AMD based system we've chosen a motherboard with very similar features compared to the Intel based motherboard above. It is a Socket AM3+ motherboard so in the future when you need more performance you can upgrade to one of new Zambezi CPUs or even a newer unknown AM3+ CPU. This motherboard supports 32GB of RAM. The on-board video, sound and networking are comparable to the Intel based motherboard.

 

 

altRAM (Memory)

The RAM Memory speed needs to match what the motherboard can handle.  DDR2 800 or 1066

Notes

Vantec Stealth 80mm Case Cooling Fan

Newegg.com

$9.99

The case we recommend above has space for one more 80mm fan.  We recommend adding it to help keep the components cool.

 

Sound and Network - included on the motherboard

The motherboard include sound and network adapters so you don't need to buy a separate add on card.

For a PCI computer sound card comparison see the computer sound card component video lesson

For more on
the Network card component see the Modem and Network card component video lesson.

 

Why we recommend Newegg.com

You will notice that all of the links to the components in the list are pointing to Newegg.com.  We do receive a commission for any purchases made that come from these links.  Our commission is 1%.  This is not very much.  We could direct our customers to other sites where we would receive much higher commissions.  We chose Newegg because we absolutely believe they are the best place to buy online.  They consistently have the lowest prices, best selection, helpful end user reviews and real customer service.  If you have a problem with a part you can call them up and talk to a real person about whether to exchange it or get a refund.
