My step-dad has asked me to put together a components list for him to get, to build a Desktop for his music studio. His budget is only $400 US Dollars. He wants at least a Quad Core Processor (for some reason he prefers AMD), SSD, and preferably ASUS components. He has a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and DVD Drives, to use for the build, so we won't need to purchase those things. Also, won't need to factor in a copy of Windows into the build price, b/c the way he is talking he wants to run a Linux distro on it. Any help putting together a parts list would be greatly appreciated. Obviously it doesn't need to be high end components, just good quality components.
Thanks a bunch in advance,
