PC Build [For Office Work]

  Nick Gilbert 15:59 19 Oct 2018

I'd like to build a PC for general office use.

We only need the PC build itself (the case and everything inside).

We already have a monitor, keyboard, mouse, cables and a copy of windows 10.

This new build is for my partner and will be used for work ONLY (no gaming). This will be used for Emails, Microsoft Office (Word & Excel) and a little bit of Adobe Photoshop/InDesign.

I would like the PC to be reliable and last long term.

Could someone kindly help by putting together a build?

I would have thought this should cost anywhere between £300-£400 since we are building this ourselves.

Thank you for any advice you can give!

Google for "Barebones Kits" and look at Novatech and ebuyer. Generally you will need to add a Hard drive and a CD / DVD drive. I would look at a minimum of 8GB RAM and I would put in a basic graphics card otherwise some of the RAM will be reserved for the onboard graphics.

Office Computers are as cheap as chips, and come with a warranty
