So my new job requires I have my own PC. I'm considering building another one. I mainly built performance/gaming PC's the past decade which makes it easy to compare the top of the line cpus etc. When it comes to budget and low price items I'm not sure what is quality and what isn't. Ideally Id have the smallest form factor possible but a mid-tower, sub 19", is fine too. The PC will be used for browsing the web and opening of PDF and also large scale electrical schematics, either in pdf form or through the browser so scaling and moving the image fluidly is desired. I don't have to get a monitor (will be using a 40" TV so 1920x1080 resolution is needed). I'd like to keep the cost sub $500 if building it. On board gfx are ok - i hear intel hd 630 is nice? I won't be doing gaming on it but likely emulation of older systems(pre n64) which any old system can do. What are some quality low cost, reliable cpus and mobos? A couple pre-built systems that might fit the bill are: http://www.microcenter.com/product/478253/IdeaCentre_300S-08_Desktop_Computer http://www.microcenter.com/product/474800/Aspire_ATC-780A-UR12_Desktop_Computer are these systems reliable? would they fit the bill? I'd like very responsive browsing... thanks for any insight!
