    I'm in need of a few various builds, which will be listed below. Please stay within $20 of the budget. No need to include OS. Please Avoid Water Cooling. Also no overly noisy fans on the cheaper builds. Oh and I'm in the US. Thank you for your help.

    Up to $300- Simple Text Editing and Internet Browsing Computer. Go as low as you want.
    $500- Media Center Style Computer, must have large HD.

    $600-700- Low End Gaming System

    $1500-1700 A Computer made for Processing, build it around the Nvidia Tesla; which runs for about $1000

    $2000 High End Gaming System
    -( http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=10476165

    $4000 Extremely Powerful System all around.
    -( https://secure.newegg.com/WishList/p...umber=14322108

    I think I may switch the case to an oil cooled variety just for the sake of fun.

    Are you making a guide or something?
    In a situation like this, prices will be out of date in a couple of weeks.

    Fuck, gaming systems can be made cheaper than your low end one.

    I'd recommend trying to build the PC without any combo deals, just incase when somebody orders it there will be no confusion. (Although when they do order it, try to find combo deals with the same specs, so you get more cash.)

    I just need a rough representation of what can be bought with what amount of money, the fact that prices change quickly will not be a problem. If needed, one could leave a piece out and say, hey for 75 dollars, I can get a good PSU. Sorry if that's a bit odd. I'm going to be building computers for various individuals around town and I need to know rough values and what can be accomplished with said amounts of cash.

    Agreed, combo deals add to the confusion greatly.

    Actually, I would like to see this, because I'm doing the exact same thing. But you may not need the 4000 dollar one, since if someone is going to be getting something that good, they probably know how/ are going to learn.

    Yeah, I'm guessing that'll happen

    And I wouldn't call $600-$700 a 'low end gaming system', since people on this board consider that to be about $400

    You'd be surprised, as the majority of people who can afford such expensive computers typically have no knowledge of how computers work, or simply want an expensive computer for their kid.

    I'd say closer to 500 is the consensus. $400 would get you a system with no GPU.

    Oh and the 4000 one is mostly for seeing what people can build with such a large amount of money.

    I agree with everything you just said, except for the 2nd one, but that is more of a matter of opinion and preferences than actual fact.
    I haven't encountered people who buy something too expensive without researching too much, but I do know that they are out there.

    I live outside of Wichita, Kansas in a town called Andover. There are a lot of people who would gladly throw their money around without doing any research. Even in Wichita. You just have to know people that aren't too impoverished or intelligent. XD

    I certainly hope not, I'm working piece by piece, finding good cases, PSUs and such, sorting by price. I'll try to post a list of what I find when I'm done. But PLEASE! Keep looking if you are.

    Oh lawd.
    2 power supplies?
    Not needed.
    2 IDE DVD drives? Just get one SATA.
    8GB of RAM? Not needed.
    You'll want a fan with that CPU cooler.
    You can get 500GB hard drives that are much better for $60 or less, or you could upgrade to a 1TB Caviar Black for $15 more.
    Arctic Silver 5 or Arctic Cooling MX-2 are much better.

    Better PSU:

    Just the kind of input I was looking for. Thank you. Why not 8GB ram though? Rather useful when running very many applications at once I've found. If anything, I'd have an option to select 4 or 8 GB.

    what the hell are you asking?

    and for what purpose

    Edited:

    are you buying a pc or making a small time business?
    If: getting a PC state price range and country do some research
    If: starting a business, if you have to ask others to make builds for you then you probably shouldn't make a business

    I'm needing to make some quick money, and I'm rather very short on time, only about an hour a night. I've got servers to tend too, asking for help is the simplest thing to do.

    And why no water cooling? most of the people who would spend 4k on a PC would cream themselves at the sight of colored water in their case.

    :ughh: I said that I couldn't decide between cases, and I accidentally added a second PSU. I'm not going to order for a bit, and what kind of person orders without checking over their list a second time.

    The thing with water cooling is that it's difficult to keep working, I prefer oil submersion cases myself.

    for one, if they're buying a premade PC chances are they don't even know the first thing about what they're buying

    That's why I wouldn't go with water cooled. Oil submersion, on the other hand, if done correctly is simple enough to explain to a 5 year old.

    Step 1: Get Case.
    Step 2: Add 8 Gallons of mineral oil.
    Step 3: Turn on. Done.

    Being submerged in oil is much easier than using the complex series of tubes, having to replace filters and such. I have a low-end computer running in mineral oil, and have for several months. No problems.

    Edited:

    Oh, and you certainly don't sell the mineral oil with it/in it. That would be stupid.
