Go for a second hand pentium 3. I don't know about America, but in SA, I can get one for the equivelant of about $110.

i could fit a cheap cd-rom drive in there if you need one the mobo has integrated graphics so you have to live with it.oh and a 3 dollar case fan too

lemme put this into a summary for you.

1. For $170 u won't be able to do any video editing efficiently
2. If u boost it up to like $200 u can get some nice stuff
3. If he just wants to do e-mail and basic crap why not use the old case and old parts and just get a mb, proc, mem.
4. On-board video in not a video card..hint hint onboard
5. As long as it's basic programs he can do it with the post from zero, but just remember it is only basic.

In my opinion just get it as an x-mas gift and everyone throw in some money.

Also you came to us for help, we helped, and u got mad....wtf is wrong with the picture...anyway...good luck and i reccomend not building a computer for $170....it won't run anything but the basics and basics mean just that uber basic

Again, you guys aren't reading everything. The comment about the video card was to pzerofgh, when he included it in his first 'price quote.' Then I mentioned to Matt that I was using my old AGP video card, so that if he wanted to, he could look for a motherboard without integrated graphics, because that might open some options and be a little cheaper.

You guys are too quick to judge, and, frankly, too stupid for me to waste my time with. I don't need your insults and unnecessary comments. I was just trying to give some guidance, so that you could help me better.

I don't know how many of you are kids, but you're all acting like them right now. I don't have time for this.

I just hate people who go "I need a cheap computer that needs to do a lot" and then, when we very realistically tell them that they need a bigger budget, they get indignant!

Geez, for all I care, go buy a f***ing Dell...
