A pretty simple tower, no OS needed.

Overall is this good for a basic starter computer tower build? Or can you guys really beat this?

A buddy of mine is looking to get a new simple setup.

Not to shabby provided he's not in need of a high end vid card.
The weird part is it already has a fair on board vid.

Edit...
The newegg units seem OK for the price too.

It's a tough call on these type of systems though.

At least with that build you get 880 chipset +ddr3 memory. I'll see if I can build one cheaper.

Oh, and the 840 is a great chip; I used the 820 for a friend and it gamed very well.

I don't blame you either. I bet we all like to build our own systems, but when it comes to $400, it becomes a challenge for sure.

Basically it's, Case, CPU, MB/intergrated GPU, RAM, HDD, dvd drive is optional, PSU for under 400.

Thanks for responding so fast though guys.

EDIT: I just realized that the setups for the Egg are mATX.

Well he plans to upgrade it possibly later down the line, so that isn't too much of an issue.
