Hello everyone I have person that only has $300.00 and they want me to build a system for them minus the OS....The system will be used for surfing the web, and playing games like bejexeled and such its for a 8 year old. Looking to do this as cheap as possible....so $300.00 is the ceiling I would like to do it for $225.00 if possible.
