Business PC Build Components

Friday, December 30th, 2011

PC CaseI was recently asked to put together a reasonable spec’ computer mainly for business use.

Parts were all from CCL for convenience as I was not placing the order myself, and they are competitively priced, however I have had a bad experience trying to return a faulty part to them a few years back.

I went with the following components:

Component Name Cost (£)
Case Evercase Giga ECE4252 13.00
Hard Drive 750GB Seagate Barracuda 96.97
Motherboard Intel Classic Series DH61CR 58.37
Memory Crucial 4GB PC3-10600 1333MHz Kit 18.94
Processor Intel Core i5-2400 3.1GHz Processor 153.44
CD/DVD Sony 24x SATA DVD-RAM 14.16
PSU CIT 450W Black PSU 18.64
Monitor BenQ BL902TM 132.64
Software Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 105.06
Software Microsoft Office 2010 158.89
Rear Fan
Front Fan
Total 770.11

Note: Cost excludes postage, I used some spare front and rear fans I already had.
