My friend is looking to get a new pc, and he is going to have about 600$ to spend. He just need a computer, no mouse keyboard or monitor. I just wanted some suggestions on what would be good, please show links. Thanks in advance.

$600 budget, perhaps telling us what it will be used for so the config can be considered.<br />
<br />
Will he be needing HDD, PS, Case, CD/DVD-ROM too?

The cas may be a bit of an issue, check out the connections for the on/off, power on light, etc... they are usually a module that can be difficult to get to work on an aftermarket MB.

MB AM2 $72<br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813138028" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138028</a><br>
CPU Orleans 3200+ good OCer which should hit 2700MHz or higher $79<br>
But you would probably need a better HSF, but only for about over 2600MHz OCs<br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103637" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103637</a><br>

That's considering he is using his CD/DVD-ROM, HDD, Floppy and case<br>
He will probably need at least a different PS! or Case?PS combo but about the only good case/PS is Antec.

i like dukes finds, but a case and psu is a must. I don't even know if you can hook up a non dell mobo to the dell case? I thought the screw patterns are different? Anyways, a 450 watt power supply would be good enough, I would suggest antec. Good luck with the build. Mike
