Additional Comments: It's for my brother who is turning 30. He doesn't play games but does want to start learning how to produce "beats," watch "hd porn," burn "pirated dvds," and make "spreadsheets." Literally, that is what he texted me saying he wants it to do. It is very low budget build so I am requesting the advice of this collective expert community on how to maximize the dollar for the build he wants. He will need an OS but nothing else software related. And I'm perfectly okay with with a safe overclock. He is not tech savvy but lives a few minutes away. I would prefer avoiding calls from him asking for help with anything after I complete the build and give it to him.

Thank you much :)

  1. Your brother sounds like a lonely pervert here you go it's 400 though http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-Details.asp?EdpNo=1970060&sku=H24-2310
  2. Perhaps a small form factor ITX system?
  3. Thanks everyone for the replies thus far.

    Batuchka-- I would need to upgrade the DVD to RW and also I would need to include an OS. How does this build compare to the pre-manufactured builds posted by bigcyco1?

    Is it even worth putting together a custom build on such a low budget? I'm down either way. Just trying to help out my bro.
  4. No problem!Your very welcome!BTW was kidding about the lonely pervert LOL!
