Too your parents? Seriously? Sell? You have some interesting ideas...
Yeah, I know. The thing is a couple of years ago, I had given them my even older PC. Now it's an old piece of crap blue screening very often and not worth repairing. So they call me up and ask me to make them a new one. I look for piece and for 400-500 $ I can make something nice.
But I thought that for a lot less, I could use parts that I am using on my actual computer. It's a lot less expensive and still better that what they need. And that way, I don't get stuck with useless components when I upgrade my actual system. Although I was planning on doing it later than right now.
Not to mention that I don't how well windows XP 32 bit will handle something new like an APU.
