UNIT 3 COMPUTER SYSTEMS By George Smith-Moore
INTRODUCTION (M1) For the tasks in the next slides I had to: Describe the common hardware and software components that Earl would need for a computer system that meets the needs of his business. I also had to provide Earl with a list of components, peripherals and software that he would need in order to create a suitable system for him. And to top that I had to justify the choices that I had made on my costing list.
PROCESSOR I have chosen to use Intel Celeron G1610. It is 2.6GHz with a 2MB cache, LGA 1155. The Cost is £30.48 From www.waeplus.co.uk I have chosen this over other processors because of the cost and compatibility with the Motherboard, this processor is a cost-effective way for a business to have a cheap but functioning computer. The Intel Celeron suits the needs of Earls business
MOTHERBOARD I have chosen to use MSI H77MA-G43 It runs LGA 1155 Features: Built-in sound, 4xUSB2.0/ 2xUSB 3.0, 1x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 slots, 2x PCIe 2.0 x1 slots. Cost is £52.24 From www.waeplus.co.uk I have chosen this over other motherboards due to price, features and compatibility. This motherboard has all of the PCI/PCIe slots he needs.
RAM I have chosen to use Kingston single rack module. I will use 2x 2GB It is 1066MHz The cost is £11.46 each With a total cost of £22.92 It will be ordered from www.dabs.com I have chosen to use this RAM because of the cost and because the motherboard still has two other RAM slots, in case he needs to upgrade.
GRAPHICAL PROCESSING UNIT I have chosen to use Intel HD graphics. Intel HD graphics is built into the CPU. It is free with the CPU. I have chosen to use this because of the cost and because the graphics power meets what he needs.
HARD DISK DRIVE I have chosen to use Hitachi Deskstar OEM. It features a 500GB size. It has a 16MB cache. It has a 7200RPM. It will cost £40.00 It will be bought from www.ebuyer.com I have chosen this HDD because he would need a HDD that has plenty of space, I have future proofed his business by choosing this HDD.
DISK DRIVE I will be using LG GH24NS95 It is SATA It is 24x internal DVD/RW It will cost £16.80 It will be bought from www.digitalpromo.co.uk I have chosen this Disk drive because it allows earl to use disks to view and install media, it also allows him to create hard copies of his work.
POWER SUPPLY UNIT I have chosen to use a bundle deal. This includes the case and power supply. It is the CiT Shadow Black ATX case with a 500w PSU. It will cost £23.33 together. I will order it from www.scan.co.uk I have chosen this as the deal saves a lot of money and the case has enough room and the PSU has enough spare wattage. This will suit Earl‟s Ices very well.
COMPUTER TOWER I have chosen to use a bundle deal. This includes the case and power supply. It is the CiT Shadow Black ATX case with a 500w PSU. It will cost £23,33 together. I will order it from www.scan.co.uk I have chosen this as the deal saves a lot of money and the case has enough room and the PSU has enough spare wattage. This will suit Earl‟s Ices very well.
PROCESSOR COOLING I am going to use a 70mm CPU fan. It will be TX3 dual ball-bearing. It will cost £3.28 From www.waeplus.co.uk I have chosen to use this as it will cool the CPU down perfectly.
SOUND CARD I will be using Realtek ALC892 It is a flexible 8-channel audio with jack sensing It is built into the motherboard It is compliant with Azalia 1.0 spec It is free because it is built into the motherboard, and Earl would not need a better sound card as he is only going to be using it for Skype calls.
NETWORK INTERFACE CARD BUILT INTO MOTHERBOARD
UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS The USB will be built into the motherboard The USB‟s on the motherboard have both USB 2.0 and 3.0. They will be displayed/ used through the front and back of the case It will be free as it is paid for with the motherboard I am using these are they are standard with the motherboard and it has 6 USB ports, he will not use that many.
ISR I would need an ISR (Router) for earls ices. This would be from www.plus.net It would cost £17.49 monthly plus line rental. I have chosen this ISP as it provides the cheapest service for Earl. This is what would suit him best.
OPERATING SYSTEM I have chosen to use Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium. It will cost £69.99 It will come from www.shop.bt.com I have chosen to use this OS as Earl had stated how it needs to be compatible with XP programs. This OS allows this.
OFFICE SOFTWARE I will be using Open Office It features all the programs of Microsoft office: such as Word=WRITER PowerPoint=IMPRESS Excel=CALC Access=BASE Paint=DRAW It also features “MATH” It will cost £0.00 From www.openoffice.org I have chosen this as it is a suitable substitute for Microsoft office, and it is free.
COMMUNICATION SOFTWARE I will be using Skype. It features free calls to smartphones and other Skype installed devices. It will cost £0.00 It will come from www.skype.com I have chosen this software as it features no hidden costs, it is free, and it is widely used. As well as the fact that it is user friendly.
ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE I have chosen to use AVG free. AVG free features most functions of a paid anti-virus, but the help desk support is not as great, this I believe is not an issue. Anti-virus Support Scheduled times Automatic updates It is free It will come from www.free.avg.com I have chosen this as it works as well as a paid for version but it lacks the help desk support, it is still there, just not as great a service.
MONITOR I have chosen to use an LG 19EN33S 19” LED monitor. It features a 19” screen It is LED It will cost £65.90 It will come from www.picmania.com I have chosen this screen, as it is not too small; it is also large enough for face-to-face communication through „Skype‟.
KEYBOARD AND MOUSE I will be buying the „Gigabyte GK-KM6150. It has a keyboard and mouse combo. Both are wired. It costs £9.13 I will be buying from www.shop.bt.com I have chosen this as it is a good make, the wired feature is ok for his uses, and the combo at this price is very cost effective.
WEBCAM I will be buying a Xenta TA-988-8MEG webcam for Earl. It features video USB 2.0 4MP It costs £7.18 It will come from www.scan.co.uk I have chosen to use this as the featured webcam, as it is not a necessity, it covers video and voice, it is what he needs at a low price
SPEAKERS Earl will be using „Genius SP-S110‟ speakers. This features: 2.0 stereo speakers They are value speakers They will cost £5.98 It will come from www.scan.co.uk I have chosen these speakers as they offer excellent value. The quality of the speakers will not be fantastic, but as Mr Atkinson has suggested, they will be used for face-to-face communication only.
PRINTER For the computer build, I will use the HP desk jet 1000 Colour inkjet printer. It features: Inkjet cartridges HP software/drivers It will be bought from www.viking-direct.co.uk It will cost £33.59 I will be using this printer because it has a smaller cost, he will not be using the printer enough to need a laser printer. Mr Atkinson could also make use of the HP software that comes with the printer.
SMARTPHONE Mr Atkinsons employees will be using a smartphone, „3.5 Inch Android 4.0 Capacitive Screen Cortex A9 1GHz SmartPhone Dual SIM WIFI B3000‟ It features: Ice Cream Sandwich OS Cortex A9 1 Ghz CPU 2.0 MP camera 3.5 inch 5-point multi-touch It will cost £40.00 It will come from www.amazon.co.uk I will be using this phone, as it features a fast CPU, a working camera and a screen, large enough for face-toface communication.
SIM CARD If Mr Atkinson would rather his employees be on contract SIM they can have: Talk mobile, but if Pay-asyou-go is fine then „Three‟ is the network to go. They Feature: Talk mobile: 100mins, 100 MB data, 100texts Three: 1p per MB of data, 2p per text, 3p per call/min The contract will come from www.carphonewarehouse.com but the pay-as-you-go will come from www.store.three.co.uk The contract will cost £5.11/month I have chosen these as the phone would only be used for work, and so no greater deal would be needed.

INTRODUCTION (M2) After I had done M1, I had to do M2, M2 will be shown on the slides after this. For M2 I had to justify why Earl‟s system could be upgraded. I believe that I have completed the tasks out well, and to the best of my ability

I have placed the Motherboard that is already used on the left side of the table. MSI H77MA-G43 MSI z87-G45 Gigabyte Z68AP-D3 GAMING It features: Built-in sound, 4xUSB2.0/ 2xUSB 3.0, 1x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 slots, 2x PCIe 2.0 x1 slots.
