Question description

You are a star consultant from "Hardware R US" IT consulting and managing firm. You just got hired by "Home Solutions Inc" a construction and parts company to help them with their hardware and networking needs. Your specific tasks to help the business are the percentages that correspond to the per item payment (grade weight):

A) For 50% of the payment (Grade):The owner badly needs a new desktop business computer, he is still running a Windows NT relic, but he can only afford $1,000 for it. You need make sure that you assemble a desktop for that amount, which should include:

1) All the components within the tower PC, assume a Windows 7 PC, do not include operating system costs though.
2) Any peripherals such as monitor, mouse, keyboard
3) Any networking components that may be needed
4) Detailed cost component by component
5) Explanation of why this specific component was chosen vs. some other one

B) For 50% of the payment (Grade):The owner also has a son that he has promised a GAMER PC to him, since he is helping him out in the business. He can only spare another $1,000 for this one as well. It will need to be networked to the Business PC and should also include:

1) All the components within the tower PC, assume a Windows 7 PC, do not include operating system costs though.
2) Any peripherals such as monitor, mouse, keyboard
3) Any networking components that may be needed
4) Detailed cost component by component
5) Explanation of why this specific component was chosen vs. some other one

For the above project, make sure that you include a spreadsheet, that can easily track the cost of each component that you have decided to include. You can search in the internet in sites like newegg.com, motherboards.org, or any other site that you choose, as long as it is properly referenced. Each item must be listed with its price and a grand total of $1,000 for each PC must be there to verify the budget. If decide to do wireless networking, the cost of it must be included in the cost of one of the two systems. In any case do explain the networking details of the two PCs.

The case study must be submitted as a Word document in the assignment area, with a minimum of 1,000 words.
