Default About time for a new PC. Parts?

Well i have been goofing around and learning what i can about keeping my pc going for a few years now and i've come to the point that instead of trying to keep my old current pc going i will put one together with all new parts and software.
I have came here for any advice i can get and any recommendations anyone would like to share.
I do Not play pc games so as far as high dollar graphic's go i will be fine with a basic graphics card.
I will only be using it for email, ebay and of coarse watching video's here on LiveLeak.
So far i have picked out a case but even that comes with a power supply (300 watts) and i might need a larger one before i am done.
My second step was finding a motherboard and i have found that the number of mb's and the options and specs are a little overwhelming.
I figure if i can get some advice on a motherboard choice then all the parts from that point on will be one's compatible with the mb i have.
Thanks for taking your time to read this and share any info you wish will be greatly appreciated...,,,Rob.

pick the newest fastest cpu you can afford. then a mb to match. Asus is good but not the only mb mfg. don't forget an external hd for back ups.

Price and power with room to grow, matched for voltage and speed, under $600.
I have built and shipped several of these with no complaints and no returns and run one here myself for the kids when they come over to game or kill time .. what ever.

This is the low end of what I am willing to sell to my customers, I tend to keep quality high as I don't like returns.
I did cut on the case some but not that much its fully filtered and easy to clean.
I can put an Intel package together as well running at the same level but it will cost you nearly twice as much.
And ignore the fan boy chat, they simply do not understand the differences in the ranges of voltage vs frequency these systems run at.
They tend to just put old parts together to cut costs and declare it all crap because they have problems.
They as I like to say, know just enough to be dangerous.

So no external Video Card? They have integrated the R7 chipset into the CPU? What is the performance like?

Thank you for the information. I will be purchasing the item's i need over a period of a couple of months and then assembling them when i have everything needed. I seen a couple of vendors have what they cal a "bundle package" and after reading a few reviews it looks as if the vendor just gathered up parts that nobody wanted and call it a "bundle package".
Thanks again Tinbuk3.

Well i got around to ordering parts today. I'm using the list TinBuk3 shared and using that as a base of sorts. In other words i'm shopping for the parts he listed or better.
I'll try to make a video of me putting it together but for now i got to get back to rolling my pennies. Oh and i will accept donations for my project. No cash please just parts. hahaha.
Thanks again and have a nice day.,,Rob.


Oh and how do you feel about windows 7? I've briefly used a pc with windows 8 and if i had it i am sure i would learn how to navigate through it but i've never used 7 so is it anything close to xp or is it more like 8? Maybe i should just ask what everyone feels the best and purchase and lean that OS. But thats down the road a few weeks from now.
Thanks again and take care.,,Rob.

You will find 7 an easy migration from XP.
If not use the tour or the help feature to learn specific things.
Its a more stable platform IMHO.
Screw the third party anti virus and use the security essentials it works well and its free at the MS site.
Should you find yourself locked out of your browser at some Russian porn site etc just CTRL/ALT/DEL and open task manager to reset the browser, delete browser history and run essentials to quarantine anything you may have missed, it runs just fine in the background.

And shoot me a PM when you get the vid done, I like to see people do it themselves.

I have a friend that has a motherboard he bought but never used and i can get it very cheap but not sure if it's anything i would need. It's a Gigabyte Ultra Durable 4 Classic GA-F2A55M-DS2 Desktop Motherboard - AMD A55.
Is this something i can use or should i stick to the list?
Thanks for any opinions.
