My old NF-7 V2 fried the other week. I decided to start from scratch with a very limited budget set by my wife, since we already have a laptop. I had just bought a:
WD1600AAJB 160GB from Newegg and hadn't installed it yet.
I also some usable parts I suppose from the old system:
GIGABYTE GV-R92128DH Radeon 9200 128MB
Antec Solution SLK3700AMB ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 350Watt (SL350) Supports motherboards up to a standard ATX Antec.com - Solution Series
I need a basic motherboard. No gaming other than my daughters Disney games. I might in the future decide to use the computer to put my old VHS tapes onto DVDs. Not sure if this makes a difference. But I suppose it will. Other than that I just use it for bills and Internet browsing. Any recommendations? It can even have a built in video card. Remember....my wife is a penny pincher so nothing extravagant. Thanks
Also how about a good DVD drive that I can use to watch and burn DVDs?
I was very good a few years ago with keeping up with technology, but recently I have been out of the loop.
I forgot to include brands. No preference.
I do like to shop at Newegg.
I also use Windows XP.
Money....again..technology has passed me. I bought the NF-7 for $66.00 so i have no clue.
My video card is probably outdated so an onboard is fine.
Not sure if my power supply is powerful enough.
