Ok, so my friend's only shitty Dell is finally dieing, so he's pretty dead set on buying a new, inexpensive comp. This is the latest version of the list, just posting it to double check with you fine people.
Uses: typing, videos, music, internet, gaming
Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, speakers, monitor, OS, HDD
Please note: The GPU on the list isn't the exact one he will be using, just the closest one I could find on newegg for reference. It is my old card from the HP I was using prior to building my own comp. There are probly better cards for the money, but that one will have to do.
