Can someone do better with this budget build?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My brother in law is going to give me $250 to spend on a system. I'm assuming he'll probably watch movies, chat, websurf, moderate gaming, and occasionally homework. So he may not want the super slowest system either.

I figured, maybe a dual-core processor I can OC slightly and 2 gigs of ram minimum, and a dvd burner was a must he said. I already have a mid-tower ATX case with a 450 watt PSU so that's not an issue. And we'll stick with on-board graphics for now

Having said that, can anyone do better and lower that price a bit? Shipping kills, I'll end up making maybe $15 for all of that hassle heh. Thanks for your help in advance.

Thanks. I was gonna go with 64 but I mainly use intel cpu's so I wasn't sure if that meant 64 bit, for 64 bit OS's...I guess that may have to do lol. Thanks again.
