ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I already have a case for her, and the power supply. Just need to build a cheaper home pc build based around the P4 3.2ghz. Any build ideas and or knowledge of where to get this older hardware?
Do you already have the P4? I would really suggest something like an Athlon II 245 if you dont already have the P4. If its a socket 775 P4 you should be able to get a cheap board that supports it off newegg along with some DDR2 ram, get a Gxx board so you dont have to get a GPU too. If you dont already have the p4 its going to be harder to get.
Alright, so I was going to make her a dirty Pentium 4 system, but you guys talked me out of it to say the least. So I have a case, Power supply, and all the case mods for it. Now for the actual system, lolz... I want to keep this PC as cheap as I can but still get decent hardware. All this PC will most likely be used for is facebook, net surfing, and a few papers for college. As I said, my budget is around $200, buuut, if any of you can find some good ways to budget it less, props.
