I've searched Pcpartpicker, newegg and amazon. The problem I'm having is making sure that the CPU I buy is the best option for my usage below. When I bought mine it was simple I just grabbed an i7 4790k and called it a day. Trying to budget build a PC for someone else with completely different needs than mine, its difficult to select the correct CPU out of all of the available options.
…list all your requirements for a single, specific piece of hardware …avoid asking for technical support
- I'm looking for a CPU for general office use, including facebook games.
- I have no preference between Intel and AMD.
- Integrated graphics
- No preference between current gen and last gen
- Under 100$ usd
Additional points I should clarify, and things I don't really need help with.
- Going to use a micro ATX motherboard
- Already have a 500w evga PSU for the system
- Noise doesn't matter
- Would like to use stock cooling
- Plan on having an ssd(m.2 or standard) and two 3.5 inch archive drives.
- PC will be shut down nightly
- No interest in Over clocking at all.
- The most intensive thing this build will do is playback 1080p media from a remote plex server.
Based on a couple comments and answers so far, I think I might be worried a bit too much about what CPU to buy, it seems like anything a few years old and within my budget would be acceptable.
