$500 budget build Tags: Build Hard Drives DVD Drives Systems Product Last response: January 14, 2013 4:01 PM in Systems Share jd_w98 January 14, 2013 3:09:07 PM I need an upgrade and can salvage dvd drive and hard drive. I can wait on the gpu as I have the radeon 4850 and the psu (450 watt 80+). So excluding those and the os. I need a build for $500. I kind of want a mini itx as I go to lan Parties.
