Question description

Incorrect, incomplete, low quality work won't be accepted.


In this paper you have to select components to build a low-noise

and low-power desktop computer which will primarily be used in reading

e-mails, preparing documents/reports, browsing web, and occasionally

watching Youtube videos. It will certainly not be used to play games!

A dual- or quad-core CPU with minimum 2.5 GHz clock is preferred.

Your selection should include a CPU, a graphics card if necessary, a

motherboard, at least 4 GB memory, a magnetic or solid-state disk with

minimum capacity 250 GB, a power supply, a cooling/ventilation system

if necessary, and a computer case.

For each of the components, list the product name, vendor, and power

consumption as well as summarize the product specification.

Estimate how much idle and full load power each of the components as

well as the computer will consume.  List all the references including

web-pages from where you have collected information for this report.

Calculate in dollars how much saving the low-power computer will result

if it is used for five years.

Estimate the cost of any additional components and supplies needed to

build the computer and calculate its total cost.


a) A rule of thumb for design can be: Select quiet fans, a motherboard

that controls fans smartly, and components that generate minimum heat.

b) An inefficient or improperly sized power supply can waste over 50

percent power which gets dissipated as heat.  Power supplies generally

have poor efficiency at low load.

c) Most of the report should be written in itemize or tabular format.

Please do not present the whole story as a single paragraph prose!

d) Exclude the power consumption and price of the monitor from all
