Hey all,

I have been tasked by my dad to come up with a complete system for the home office. The only software that will be used will be Office and web browsing. Budget is £500 and it needs to include everything, monitor, keyboard, mouse, operating system(Win 7 Home Premium will be fine) etc.

I have been looking around but not sure what components to get, I am think AMD APU? I would prefer an integrated GPU to save money, 22 inch monitor would be good, 8GB RAM because it is pretty cheap at the moment.

Cheers! :D

I certainly would not recommend using a cheap PSU such as the one included with that case.

• Gigabyte board has a better warranty than Asrock and a UK based RMA center.
• The Samsung SSD is seriously fast and on offer today


The OP gets free delivery so its under £500:)

I'd rather have a 256 as storage drive than a 128 as a typical SSD when the difference in actual world speeds (not benchmarking) isnt very different.
