So my dad want to put together a cheep and simple computer for my grandparents. All they would use it for is e-mail, the occasional googling and they never save anything to their computer. I am still quite new to the whole building a computer thing, and this would be my second build.

Please look it over and keep in mind that this is a very minimalist computer.

CPU: Intel Core i3-2120T 2.6GHz Dual-Core Processor $120.99

Motherboard: Intel DH61WWB3 Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard $59.81

Memory: G.Skill NS 2GB (1 x 2GB) DDR3-1333 Memory $9.99

Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 80GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $59.99

Case (Very retro): HEC 7106WW ATX Desktop Case $39.99

Power Supply: Apex 250W SFX12V Power Supply $19.49

Any feedback is welcome!

Live long and prosper!
