Question My sister wants to play Maplestory..

FML, my sister wants a Maplestory build and my mom said I HAVE to build it for her, as a Birthday present. My sister plays Maplestory quite frequently, along with other normal computer tasks and she only needs about 250GB of hard-drive space. Sooo...to the budget. I need everything except for peripherals(mouse and keyboard). Cheap-o speakers are acceptable! Thanks for the help guys-Sam. PS:Mom wants lowest budget possible whilst giving "Maplestory acceptable" performance

I had a cheapo Dell with onboard graphics (P2 1.00ghz) and it was able to run maple Story. Sure it lagged, but it was still capable of the task.

Meaning Maple Story uses about as much power as notepad. And maybe Minesweep.

Playing Maple story actually makes your computer's performance go up.
