My brother needs a computer to do the following: everyday email, web surfing, watching dvds, youtube videos, netflix, etc. and regular office work using MS Word, Excel, etc.
Is it possible to build a new and fast computer for what he needs under $300? I do have Win XP Pro and MS Office 2003 Pro.
Also, it is worth the effort or should I pay $379 and buy him a Dell Inspiron?
Forgot to add: if it is worth building it and can be done for about $300, what parts should I get? Case, CPU, Mobo, Power, HDD? anything else?
