Looking to spend about 300 on a family members computer to get it back up and operating.
It is an old compaq that the mobo is failing so far the audio is fryed and the onboard networking card is tempermental at best. It has a single core pentium d with 1 gb ddr2 ram. Nothing special at all.
System Usage from Most to Least Important:surfing the internet, picture viewing, other minimal tasks. no gaming
Preferred Website(s) for Parts:newegg.com, tigerdirect,amazon anything reputable
Country of Origin:USA
SLI or Crossfire:no
Monitor Resolution:1440x900 (HP w1907)
Additional Comments: low cost just need the internals (CPU, mobo, ram, hdd (500gb should be fine but 1tb is what I would like) Doesn't matter what parts as long as they will last for internet surfing and picture viewing for hopefully the next 3-5 years or so.
+1 Very nice my in-laws should love it. Like I said there won't be any gaming but some picture editing maybe all they do is use their computer to store pics and lookup things online. Sometimes when they are feeling like a challenge they even try getting on facebook.
