this here shoots down 5 of the components you have to buy for 80 bucks.

then, find a nice hd for, wat, like 30 bucks here for 160GB.

CD Burner for $20.

keyboard and mouse wireless, for $30


2.1 speakers for $33

Brings you to a grand total before monitor, tax, and shippin of $193. add a max of 100 for S&H if you want it the next friggin day, add another $100 for a nice CRT, and you got your aunt a computer, and you're pocketing $307. Sheesh, you should be payin me for this.

haha jk
