I am thinking about building a computer for my church's Sound Booth, as the one they have up there now isn't really suited for the job (just slow in general). I have the choices I've made below. We usually have a powerpoint running on a TV and projector simultaneously. We would probably do more on it if we had a more powerful system, but we just can't right now.

  • Better PSU
  • Better motherboard (can support a 3rd gen chip, if necessary)
  • Are you sure you need an optical drive?

Yeah, a lot of things my church does is on DVD, and sermons are recorded both on CD and flash drive.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that I have some hard drives that I could use(both a smaller SSD and a larger HDD). I guess that makes it just that much cheaper, without sacrificing power. I like that it's under 600usd though(without drive cost).

Well, if you have storage already, why not get a higher binned CPU (not that it matters much, but you do get a better cooler)

Also got a nicer case
