Budget non-gaming PC ...
Aug 26, 2010, 6:17 PM
Tried searching but could not find anything.
I'm looking to build a non-gaming PC for my step-father. The extent of his use is internet explorer and turbotax.
Preferably a cheap motherboard with integrated video, cheap but decent case, etc.
Any help is appreciated. He's using his old monitor, a 15" LCD so the on-board video doesn't have to be great.

I would build an Atom D510 system. You can build a complete PC for under $250.

Here is one I just put together for a home server, but it would make a decent low end desktop as well.
Case: Foxconn RS233 Mini ITX
Motherboard: Intel D510MO
Memory: 2GB PQI DDR2 800 DIMM
HDD1: Hitachi 1TB 7200RPM SATA 3.0

That looks pretty good. I may opt for 4GB though. I seem to notice a big difference just in basic use.
I also gotta buy win7 for him ;/ if only people would convert to ubuntu.
