Default Need a new build.

Not for me, it's for a client. She needs a very cheap $250 computer that will be used for extremely basic applications. The smaller, the better. I won't be needing an OS, monitor, mouse, etc. Just the tower.

Default Re: Need a new build.

tower
uATX MSI mobo
WD HDD
Athlon II 240
20$ 1GB Gskill ram
CD DVDrw drive

around 285, with just 1 GB ram, 305 with 2GB ram.

I know its a tad over budget, but i hope this gets ya on a good start. This is basically what im going to use for a HTPC set up, but use a blu ray instead of DVD drive.

AMD is the way to go. You can't even pick up an E5200 for less than 70 dollars. :|
