Ultra Cheap Build

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My in laws are needing a upgrade to their current computer. Its an old dell, cant remember the model.

All they pretty much do is surf the internet, email, and flash games from facebook and pogo etc....

I have a CPU and some Ram

CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103194

Ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146699

I'm assuming that onboard video and sound will be fine for what they are doing.

Give me your ideas for lets say $200-$250.

Don't need Keyboard, mouse, or OS.

Doesn't have to be fancy, just working and reliable.

Thanks
Money Pit

Suggesting prebuilts!? How shameful
ASRock GeForce 8200 AM2+ motherboard [full HD video acceleration incl. flash 10.1/10.2] - $55 shipped
Apex DM-387 + 275W low profile case/PSU - $43 + shipping
Seagate 400GB Recertified - $30
Use current CPU/RAM

That's only $128 + shipping

Well within budget. You could still fit a Samsung F3 1TB into this budget, or other awesome things
Add a DVD drive (I recommend $18 shipped Samsung 22X) and you're set
All that and with the F3 1TB as the HDD, still within $200
