I think I can get about $20 on eBay if I got that case/PSU deal and sold the PSU. Then, it would be $40 for the one you recommended.. leaving $55 total for a case and quality PSU, which really isn't that bad! (I'm super thrifty
My mom is EXTREMELY thrifty, too - I get it from her) So... that's not too shabby. Also, I think I can get a 17" Monitor on eBay for around $60 instead of $80, so that'll make up for it!
So there you have it, a good, well-built computer that will last, eh? Do you think that that motherboard will run Ubuntu graphics okay?
What's different about it? What makes it better? (Not trying to be sassy - no sarcasm intended. It's a serious question)
