reichelt have sponsored a challenge to build a computer for £300. With a budget of only £300 I have to source the best bits of computer equipment for a main central processor unit (CPU) to build the most competent computer I can.
In part seven, we throw the parts together and hope for the best. Here is a summary of the parts, prices and links used in the video.
Desktop hard drive, 1 TB, WD Blue – £44.66
AMD FM2+ A6-7400K, 2x 3.50GHz, boxed – £51.33
ASUS GF GT730 – 2 GB – passive – £55.19
GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XM-D3HP (FM2+) – £60.10
Added to the computer for testing purposes, however not included in the £300 budget, is a Benq GW2270H 21.5 inch LED Monitor available from Amazon for £79.99
And a Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 costing £12.99
Hit the subscribe button as tomorrow we will be looking at the main board into which this processor slots.
