    Default Hardware Suggestions - 24x7 - Low Power Consumption Internet Connected PC

    24x7 - Low Power Consumption Internet Download Machine
    I want to build a System that has LOW POWER Consumption.
    Use:
    Mostly Downloading Stuffs , Might Host Own Cloud too , Email Clients , IRC Clients , Other Internet Connected Apps

    I was thinking of a Kabini System
    Athlon 5350 (25 W TDP) & Some AM1 Mother Board

    http://products.amd.com/pages/deskto...il.aspx?id=105

    Again I was thinking about the Intel G3258 Anniversary edition processor (But it has Much Larger TDP)
    It should be A Windows 7 Machine . Not Linux or other what nots !
    But I am Here for some Advice. I already told you my requirements.
    Advise me - What should I do ?

    I only want to buy
    Processor + Motherboard + RAM
    &
    SMPS (PSU) + HDD
    I have the rest

    If I was you, I would buy a second hand laptop for about 7000-8000Rs and use that instead. Initial costs will be lower and running costs will be unbeatable by any desktop combination by any standards. A laptop will not need more power back up either so that saves you some more hassle.

    Well thats Technically not true - About the Cost Part

    Using Almost Same or Less Than 7k or 8k
    I can assemble a Kabini Processor + AM1 Motherboard + Ram + HDD

    PSU Cost will be extra
    Plus it will be Upgradable
    And Kabini TDP - 25W

    Rest of the things i have

    My reference to the cost also included running costs. I believe a laptop would would consume a lot lesser energy.

    1) Keep your laptop clean and there is no reason why it would get too hot unless there is a fault in the fan.

    2) You can buy from one of your friends who wants to get rid of an old one or try one of the refurbished goods website or even olx kind of websites but make sure you check it before you buy.

    3) Yes repairing is going to be a problem and if you can repair a desktop yourself then go for a desktop by all means.
