$500 Computer Parts List

The is a general use computer.  You can use it to surf the web, send email, IM, word processing, do your taxes, play online games, burn CDs and DVDs, convert mp3s, download movies, etc.  It also has a fairly low end video card so you can use it as a basic 3D gaming machine. It will run most current games smoothly, just with the level of graphics turned down.  Go down to the Video Card section to see our pick for a basic video card.

Notes

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.  3.2GHz vs 2.9GHz for the Intel.  It is also a Triple 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.

This motherboard has a great reputation for being very stable and will allow you to upgrade to a Socket 1150 Core i7 in the future if you need more performance.  Supports a max of 32GB of RAM.  Has on-board video, networking and sound.  It's the perfect platform for building a basic, do pretty much anything very well, computer.

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.

COOLER MASTER HAF 912

Newegg.com

$59.99

This is the tower case. It cools extremely well and is very quiet.  See the case and power supply video lesson for features and specifications to look for in a custom computer case. This case has room for 4 DVD or Blu-ray drives, 6 hard drives and 2 SSDs.  It comes with 2, 120mm cooling fans.  

CORSAIR Builder Serices 430CX V2 430W Newegg.com $44.99 This is a little more expensive power supply than we would normally put into a $500 system, but it's a good idea to use a quality PSU even for a lower end system.

Notes

Antec 761345-75120-9 120mm 3-Speed Case Cooling Fan

Newegg.com

$11.99

The case we recommend above has 1, 120mm fan and space for two more, one at the front of the case, and one on the side.  To keep your hard drives cool and bring in cool air for all of your components we recommend you add at least one of these fans at the front of the case. . This Antec 120mm cooler is very quiet, which will help keep down the noise level of your computer.  It has 3 speed settings and even the fastest is still very quiet at 30dB.

 

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

Acer S220HQLAbd 22" 5ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor

Newegg.com

$119.99

This is a good quality monitor.  It has a TN panel so at an angle colors will shift.  If that doesn't matter to you it is a great buy. 

ASUS VS239H-P Black 23" 5ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Monitor

Newegg.com

$169.99

This monitor is a little on the pricey side because of its an IPS panel.  If you need excellent quality color it is worth the extra cost.  This is the same monitor we recommend for the $800, $1200 and $1800 Computers.
