My uncle is in great need of a computer upgrade Tags: New Build Computer Systems Last response: July 24, 2010 11:28 PM in Systems Share che3zeman July 23, 2010 6:23:53 PM He still has a crap computer from the 1990's. He is sadly a very cheap person and only wants to spend around 200ish and 300 being the most. This was the best I could do http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx... any changes that I could do to make it in the 300$?
