900 Dollar Budget - For Coach

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Hey there , i offered my coach to build him a computer because he has helped me get to where i am in track. His computer right now is 10 years old and i think its time for a total upgrade.

He is a teacher at my school , has a wife , and two kids. His first kid is 12 years old (boy) , his daughter i believe is 6.

Purposes : Microsoft Office , for kids , regular internet stuff.

I think i will stay away from Vista , for he is most likely accustomed to windows since he uses it on a daily basis. So windows XP it is.

I came to AMD because he won't be overclocking , doing some hardcore gaming or anything of the sort. This can also save money for a bigger monitor , more space , speakers , keyboard , mouse , and a decent case.

(DELETE)
Newegg is prefered because i need to print it out for him.

Any suggestions are apreciated as well. Thanks again OCN!
