Solved Best Buy - Basic Everday PC CPU Tags: CPUs Basic Product Last response: February 4, 2012 3:51 PM in CPUs Share awkiii_66 February 4, 2012 2:31:49 PM Am interested in building a pc for my parents. Every days use includes web browsing, e-mail and MS Office and that's about it. Would appreciate reccos on a low cost chip that will move the machine along. Not interested in an Atom or anything in the mini itx realm. Thanks!

Would like a recco on a chip that will move the machine along but doesn't have bells and whistles for things they will never use. Probably no different than a young kids first computer. They have a mini itx machine now and it moves like a turtle.
