Can I build a decent PC for $300-$400 for a family member?
Basically, my cousin's computer went out (it's old) and he desperately needs a new PC for E-mail, etc (nothing serious, maybe the occasional game or two) Mostly needs to be built for everyday tasks in general.
They said they only had $300-400 MAX to spend on new PC parts. They already have a Monitor, Keyboard and Mouse.
So they will need a new:
Did I miss anything? hehe
It's a conincedence because I am actually thinking of upgrading my PC (see other post below) but I wasn't quite ready to drop $600-700 for my upgrade parts.
So I was thinking I could maybe part with my Graphics Card or something and just upgrade that until I can afford to get get some other new parts for myself.
I was also thinking of building them a system like mine (see my specs in sig) only because I figure the parts I used for my build are probably cheap now since I purchased them back in Spring 07.
Anyways, let me know what you guys think.
