I would look at the Compaq Presarios. They are cheap and they get the job done.
Dale? Seriously, didn't we tell you not to tell other people to buy crap? Compaq has the crappiest cooling, trust me. They are poor quality.

Just make your own, it's fun, you'll learn ****, and you WILL save lots of $$$$$$$!!

I'd go for the Sempron.

Well I don't see you suggesting anything better for his budget. So maybe you should save your insults and grow up a little bit.

He didn't say he had any intention of building the thing from scratch.

Dont get that computer, it has an integrated video card. Look for something with AGPx8. This way in a year or two, you can upgrade.

I would also stick with a sempron 3000, or 2.6ghz celeron.
