I have a co-worker that asked if I'd build her a computer. All she uses it for is the internet and some flash based games and a few low end games that her kids play. In short she doesn't need anything fancy.
I asked what she had now and she said a Windows 98 system...
She still has IE5
I almost cried for her... she was telling me how she can't use half the websites they want to go on...
She wants a new PC and obviously not an upgrade. I told her it is possible that I could build her a basic to mid sized PC for about $400-$500 tops for what she wants it for, and it'll be 1000x better then that piece of garbage she has now.
I figure a single core CPU (Dual tops), a basic motherboard of some sort, 2GB (4GB tops of RAM), Windows 7 32 bit, a single low end HDD, low end but not cheap PSU and a basic case. No video card (a low end at most if needed for whatever reason) and she'll use the on-board sound, Ethernet and video.
I was looking at Newegg at the combos, but I'm not sure where to begin. I know how to build a PC, but have never really put one together. I've done just about everything with mine, so building one can't be much harder.
Oh and I assume she has the monitor, keyboard etc...
