I was recently commissioned by my parents to research a decent sub300 desktop for my brother. Up till recently, he was using a machine I had built from scavenged parts.
My only beef with boxed units is that they're no fun. I was hoping it would be possible to build a decent system under the budget.
No special Graphics card needed (He plays minecrafet at the most, and needs it for typing and light photoshop)
Decent amount of ram to run Win7
Decent, sturdy case,
Appropriate power unit.
Does anyone have any builds they can redommend, if so, please post.
