Opinions on new build
I'm building a new computer for someone, and I wanted to see if you guys had any better/cheaper suggestions. This system will be used for internet surfing and word processing and stuff like that, no gaming whatsoever. Also, the cheaper the better.
CPU- AMD Athlon XP 2700+
Motherboard- Biostar M7NCD Pro
RAM- 512 MB Kingston PC3200
Hard Drive- Western Digital 80GB
Video Card- eVGA GeForce4 MX 440 64MB-8X
Optical Drive- Sony CD Burner
Case- Antec w/ 350watt psu
Operating System- Windows XP Home OEM
And the total comes out to $522.99. To my surprise, I found the XP 2700+ cheaper than the 2500 and 2600, I guess due to their popularity. I went with the Biostar motherboard because it supports up to 3 GB of Kingston ValueRAM, and plus I've seen it used in a build on Tom's Hardware, so it must be reliable enough. Also, I realize the video card sucks, but it won't be used for gaming at all, so that should be fine. What do you guys think?
