building a low-end pc for a friend and he only wants to spend $500
He does a light gaming, a little photoshop, watches movies, and well web surfing, nothing demanding.
Is E1280 okay? Because I can get one with a mobo for $100, wasn't sure if an AMD BE230 or something would be better
and for the video card, I was thinking 7600GT? maybe since it's under $100
any suggestions for alternatives?
O yeah and he's not gonna overclock, I think...
This is how I see it:
Proc+Mobo= $100~ E2180+ecs~
Ram = $60~ OCZ 2GB
HDD = $50~ 200gb-320gb
Case = $20~ Some soulless case
Video = $90~ 7600gt~
CPU Fan = $30~ Some crabby HSF
PSU = $30~ Some Antec/Ultra
DVD Burner= $30~ Memorex, Emprex w/e
M/KB = $20~ Logitech
And this stuff will be bought at a store not newegg
Thanks ahead of time
