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 $300.00 is the ceiling I would like to do it for $225.00 if possible.

This is tough! Right, i think i've managed it, but i'm using the rebates to nudge it under $300

CPU - AMD Athlon II X2 240 Regor 2.8GHz OEM - $50.99
Way better than a sempron, only a few $ more

MOBO - GIGABYTE GA-MA78LM-S2H AM3/AM2+/AM2 - $59.99 ($49.99 after $10.00 Mail-In Rebate Card)
Cheapest respectable make with dvi out, if you dont even need this, then the price can go lower.

CASE - NZXT Gamma - $29.99

HDD - Western Digital Caviar Blue WD3200AAJS 320GB 7200 RPM - $47.99

RAM - Crucial 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 - $50.99

PSU - CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W - $49.99 ($29.99 after $20.00 Mail-In Rebate Card)
at $30, its as cheap as the most basic no name brand, but still giving corsair quality

OPTICAL - SAMSUNG Black 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW - $21.99

Total Before Rebates is $312

Total After Rebates is $282!!!
