I want to dump the Mac G5 we have in the family area (wife/kids use it) and put a Windows 7 machine in its place. Problem is, I don't want to spend much of anything. The good news is the wife and kids don't use it hardcore.
4. Netflix on new machine
6. web cam
7. typing reports and stuff (Open Office)
As you can see, the load is minimal. In fact, they were using the original Mac Mini (G4, 1 gig ram) for ages. Basically, I'm in the process of dumping our Macs.
I don't see how I can beat the build. It comes with Win 7, which is like $100 right there and the 4gb DDR3 ram is another $100, so let's say $200 already. If it could use my graphics card (below), that might work.
I should point out that I have two parts on hand:
1. Radeon HD 4350 card
2. Antec 650w PSU
Appreciate any help. Just case, ram and Win 7 has me at like $240ish on NewEgg.
