I'd like to build a low-end to moderate gaming computer for surfing the net too. I'm not looking to run Crysis on Ultra or anything at some crazy resolution. I've always been interested in computers and i came across a free case and power supply, it has an Am2 socket mobo in it already but ive come to the conclusion that has to be scrapped. So around $500 for CPU/Motherboard and video card.
Oh right, I remember from the other thread. that will work fine. If I remember correctly you do not need a DVD drive either? (DVD drive must be SATA not IDE) Do you need to buy windows? I will put something together for you.
yep you are correct sir, on all fronts. Thats me from the other post. I do need OS. Need a hard drive too, can push it to $600 even $650 i just wont be able to buy everything at once, which im not that worried about. Realizing its not worth it to try and do this for below $500
