Default Build help

Could someone take some time and list a computer for $300-500? I'm going to look some up too but I'm not to good at finding the best parts for my money. Thanks!

You need all the basics? Keyboard, mouse, monitor?

Maybe you'd be better off looking around in your local ads and craigslist to see if anyone has any used older pc's for sale that you could pick up for $100-$200. If that's all you're going to use it for, why buy new parts when an older machine will do?

Just my opinion on the matter.
