Default New Build..

I have a guy that wants me to build him a Tower he said he only does "pro tool" like editing software.. NO games.. or anything.. he says he wants a decent amount of memory for software.. he apparently already has his own OS.. he says his budget is around 500-600 but i wanna build it so i can make some kind of profit off this.. can anyone come up with a build for me that would be a good budget software comp? Thanks.

I hope you don't intend to take more than $25 for your troubles. Thats how much computer stores take in Canada for assembling computers (and thats in Canadian dollars, so it should be even less for you...)
