Well My dad is good freinds with our neighbors down the street and apparently they were going to buy a new computer, until my dad informed them of a different approach.
I need to build a media center style PC for 600 MAX.
I have the following parts that Im going to use.
Intel Pentium D 805
Enermax 485 PSU with 22A on dual 12V's.
1GB of Crucial DDR2 533 Ram.
160 GB IDE Hard Drive.
So I should be able to EASILY fit this into the budget. I was thinking some stuff along these lines:
CD RW Drive
The total for all that is 194.00
How does it look?
My only concern is a case.
I like the media center cases, the motherboard would fit in them as well, but Im worried that:
A. The PSU wont fit into them.
B. The CPU cooler will be to tall.
Im trying to keep it as cheap as possible. She just uses it for Picture editing, Movies, Email and the internet.
