Sorry for not filling out this form in my first post, hopefully this is better, thanks!

This is my first post and I would like to thank everyone in advance for your tips and help. I am building a budget computer for my brother and he has given me a limit of $300. He will not need a monitor, mouse, or keyboard. This is what I have put together for him and just wanted to make sure everything is compatible and if you guys think this would be considered a good "bang for his buck". My brother would be using this computer for web browsing, facebook, and maybe some web based games. System total comes in at $294.86 shipped. Thanks again!

    Use promo codes EMCKGKG27 & EMCKGKJ87 and your at 302.27 with a 10 dollar MIR. Much better case and PSU

    Could go with a Athlon II X3 or X4 CPU if u want more cores guaranteed

    Edit: Would need a molex to SATA power adapter the Antec PSU only has one. Also noticed I forgot a optical drive witch puts you over budget a bit :(
  3. This is a decent combo, not the best PSU but leaves you money for a optical drive and a molex to sata power connector

  4. If you really need to cut down you could get a AMD Sempron 140/145/150 for around $30-50. They run at 2.7/2.8/2.9 Ghz. And I've heard you can unlock a core.
