Solved

Hi guys im a newb and would like help on first build,

Hows it going?

Im looking to build a desktop.

Main things i will use this desktop for is surfing the web and recording music on pro tools.

Heres is the not so awesome part. Im on a budget of 350 dollars.

Im sure its not going to get me anything amazing, but If you guys can help me of getting the best i can at that price range. It would be awesome.

Is there any recommendations you guys have?
