First ever system build on a budget.


Mar 26, 2009
Hi, I've been working in the computer field for some time now, but I'm going to attempt my first ever system build for myself, I've done them for other people, but never for one of my own. I'm looking to cut costs and try to save as much money. I'd like to keep it under $350 if at all possible. The machine will be mainly used as something I can play around with and install server 08 and vista ultimate. I won't need a great graphics card, built in one will be good. Here's what I have come up with so far:

1. Case:

2. Hard Drive: Digital Caviar Black 500 GB


I basically need a powersupply and a good decent motherboard with preferably HDMI built in and 4 slots of ram. Anyone have any good suggestions on a good cheap one or something cheaper above?
