  1. Do you need an OS/monitor? Because if you do, then you're not going to get a very good computer and it'll be more advised to save up a bit more.
  2. Do you have any parts at all? i.e. dvd drive, copy of Windows, keyboard, mouse, monitor?

    If you are starting totally from scratch, I don't think $350 would cover it.

    I have an old PC in storage a few years old nothing special it's an old family computer and i could probably salvage some parts of that.

    A copy of Windows is $99. That doesn't leave much for the other parts, plus monitors are usually around $120, depending on the size. I would wait and continue saving, maybe start when closer to $500 or $600.
