Default Bargain System Guide February 2013

The Bargain Box (formerly the Ultimate Budget Box) is the most basic box we cover in the System Guides. It's neither top of the line nor extremely cutting edge, but as the lowest-price box in the guides, it has a lot of competition today. Originally, the bargain box just went up against OEM pre-builts, then netbooks vied for the same market, and now tablets compete for the dollars of bargain desktop users.

I would suggest an SSD ( 120Gb €90 http://tones.be/product/120gb-25-inc...sic-mz-7td120b ) , even for this budget build. The impact on performance is too big to ignore it. Also memory wise, up to 8gb if possible, this will give you options to use RAMDisk software ( http://www.softperfect.com/products/ramdisk/ ) to boost performance further. Or run Virtual machines, or multitask like a mofo
