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.

Any thoughts?

    total price 181. What power supply do you have? You may want to consider investing in a good modern one if yours is several years old, a corsair 400CX will raise the build price to 231 before $10 mir
