This customer's pre-built HP computer died and he needed a new one and rather than buying another pre-built system he decided to get me to build him a custom computer. He mainly uses the computer for email, surfing the net and some gaming. He had a budget of $800.00. So going Intel would have brought him over his $800.00 budget so we decided to go with AMD. the AMD FX-6300 although an older CPU still provides great performance. Once we getting a better cooling solution I will be overclocking the processor.
