comment on micro pc built plz

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
i'm planning on building a small computer that won't cost a ton, hopefully between $500-750. i know it may seem like blasphemy to speak of building anything on this forum that isn't capable of crunching 1mil digits of pi in less than 2secs or can play the latest game at atleast 60fps. however, i doubt my grandparents will need the system for more than some simple net surfing and showoff their grandchildren to their visitors. so please don't crucify or flame me alive for posting this on this forum

without further ado, here's what i'm planning to get
Case: LIAN LI PC-V300A
MB: ASUS N4L-VM DH
CPU: Core Duo T2400 Yonah
RAM: Crucial Ballistix 1GB
Remote: Logisys Wireless Remote MultiFunction Panel
PSU: SeaSonic S12-330

i'm not certain what gfx card and a wireless mouse/keyboard combo to get, and i'm also hoping to find a smaller case that has 2x5.25" external bays. thanks for reading and any help is appreciated

I know you said u want 2x5.25 bays but i think this case is awesome for these kinds of builds.

I got one of these for my older sister when i made her a comp. It has a classy design and its well built.

i mainly need the 2nd 5.25" bay for the remote power on, so that my grandparents will have an easier time turning on the PC. i'm open for suggestions if someone knows a remote that can do the samething without using an external bay

It looks pretty good for the price but I would change the case to something more appealing like this one

EDIT: ohhh im sorry, didn't totally read the first post. No reason to get the merom then if it won't be doing anything that intensive lol.
