Building my mother a computer if I can get it under 200.
Her computer sucks, all she does after a hard day of work if she isn't making food (single mom of 3) is want to watch Korean dramas and browse some Korean news. Her old computer is slow, freezes and just overall I feel bad.
I can get a case and optical drive from work. Don't need advice on Ram , I can also get windows 7 and all software.
I just need advice on motherboard, processor, fans, power supplies, and maybe a hard drive. (I just need these to equal less than $200)
I could also get power supplies, fans, and a hard drive from work if the cost will rise too much but these would be a little out dated unless I am lucky.
As long as the computer isn't slow or freezes, she'll be happy.
Since I think CPU is the most important I think I will go with AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition, get a good MOBO, Storage, get the rest from work and upgrade later on depending on what it needs.
What Mobo, 40-60$ would be good for the CPU?
