Default make me a computer please :)

Used for email, websurfing, stock trading and printing. Needs to include software, mouse, keyboard, printer, and monitor, the whole package.

price limit is $600.00, intel or amd based what ever you feel is better for this type of thing.

I don't have time to right now, sorry, but I'm guessing some people are turning this "challenge" down because your asking for alot for that amount of money. A monitor will run $100, a printer will run $100-$200. That's already half your budget. Include the mouse, keyboard, OS, and your already easily over $350.

That doesn't even include any of the internal computer hardware.

If you strectch your budget to somewhere around $800-$900, or take out the printer, then the "challenge" would be a bit more realistic.

oh, it wouldn't take that much if you're not gaming at all. Just pick random parts.
Getting a new computer: specs coming soon...

i thought so aswell, but when i asked if selling my old computer for that price was ok people seemed to thinik i could make a better one for the same price.

So, im seeing which would be better to do, make one for him, or sell my old one to him.
