post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i'm really looking into building a small cheap computer for like the internet and what not.

I already have a gpu for it.
It needs to be dual core and have at least 2gigs or ram.

When i say cheap i mean cheap. im talking like $100.

Pretty sure it wont be anywhere near $100. If that's seriously your budget- your gonna be shopping on Ebay.

Can't be done for 100.00 new.A dual core atom build might be as cheap as you can do a dual core rig new.At least 200.00 for all new components,as long as you have a windows license that can be transferred.

Atom cpu/mobo combo-70 bucks
2gb ddr2-30 bucks
new 500gb hard drive -45 bucks
cheap case and psu-50 bucks

Something like that.If you go used you could get one cheaper than 2 bills.

I have a dual core atom mini pc I built about 6 months ago with those specs I can sell for 140.00,and it runs wireless with windows xp.

Involves lots of modifying to add a vga port though.
Then there's also the $125 beagle board C4.

It would work out of the box with a HDMI to DVI cord, if what I read in the past 3 minutes is right.

The best choice for only $40 more would be a Hawkboard.

Ready to use out of the box, and only needs a VGA monitor and cord to use it.

I get great deals on PC's all the time, but they are rarely ever brand new. Usually Refurbished, Used, or Openbox. If you have a Microcenter or Fry's nearby- wakeup every morning and check the online inventory of their store. I've made a killing off my local Microcenter's.

Here's some cheap options although not near $100:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...40543&CatId=31 Tigerdirect Barebone Kit - $169

http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?inv...OOS-3R&cat=SYS Refurbished Compaq dc5750 $145

(dont suppose your gpu is SFF)
