Best computer for around $400
My friend was about to order a randomly-built computer online for X-mas before I talked to him and convinced him to hold off for a few days. I told him that I would help him build something to see if we can't get him something better for his budget of around $400.
If need be- I can sell him my 320gb pata drive for 20 bucks or so since I have a spare- so if he can get better parts by knocking off that cost, go ahead and calculate accordingly. I also have a power supply, think 320 watt, but don't think its very good (old).
He has a monitor, needs everything else, including case. Performance outweighs any kind of visuals, he is a basic user and will not be gaming (primarily music).
I would appreciate any help. I wanna help him out, but it is exam week and I don't have much time. Thanks Everyone. Brad
