Looking for suggestions on basic build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to build a basic word processing and web surfing computer for a friends parents. They already have a mouse, keyboard and monitor. What build suggestions do you have? Budget is 550-700 and must include a copy of windows.

In that case then you can probably just find a cheap 300W PSU, mobo with built in video output, and depending on the mobo a cheap processor. Any case should do as well with a $20 dvd-rw and a 500gb hard drive.
