Looking to spend as little as possible.
The computer will be used strictly for IMing, internet browsing, basic computation.
Basically, I love dual monitors, but I would prefer independent control over my 2nd monitor, so I plan to build a small secondary computer, doesn't need much hard drive space, doesn't need much computing power.
Right now I use my secondary monitor mostly to view firefox so I can see maps and quest help and stuff for AION (MMORPG I play) and so I can watch Windows Messenger for people talking to me on that...
So, that's basically all I need the second computer to do, basic internet use.
I don't need an operating system, I'm going to use Linux (Ubuntu).
Already have a monitor, and I'll be moving this keyboard over to that system when I buy a G15 for my primary rig.
I'm not great at building super-budget rigs so anybody that could help me find cheap parts would be appreciated
Looking for a Dual Core processor so I can get higher clock speeds for lower price than a Quad Core, nothing I will be using it for will utilize 4 cores.
I'm looking at this Intel Celeron E1500 Dual Core
its only $50 and should be more than sufficient.
It's in a combo deal with a MOBO for $75 after MIR: here
Currently looking at:
CASE: Antec 200
PSU: CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified

If anybody has any cheaper alternatives or recommendations or whatever,
