think you would be better off actually buying a computer already built for that price. I know I see $300 computers in the Best Buy and Circuit City ads a lot. Prebuilt would be a lot better for your price range.

I like that, although it is pushing the bank, I think this will be the way to go.

Have you considered a DELL?

Look at this

http://www1.us.dell.com/content/prod...=19&l=en&s=dhs

It could do with another 256mb RAM - however, this is a good pc for the price. 2.53Ghz processor...

And..it comes with a monitor...that will suit you great!

Okay, I have it down to two mobo/cpu combos. As I mentioned before, I will be running linux, I will not miltitask on it, and I will run AutoCad, OpenOffice, do some vid editing and some other programs.

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128292

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819112190
Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128305
