  1. With just about every major component needing to be upgraded, it would make more sense to buy a new PC or have one built for you.

    Yes , he ask me what is the low budget . hdd is high cost so hold old hdd . upgrade mobo ,processor ,ram ,cabinet ,psu. so what is the low budget . browsing internet , watching video in YouTube is his job.
  3. If you have any decent computer store near by, you should be able to find a decent HP with Windows 7/8 for 300, any low budget tends to be better for prebuilt. My brother and I got my mother a new computer for 300 about three months ago for Christmas(Early gift) to replace her old HP(one of the first AMD dual cores!)

    Not want branded items because only 1 year warranty period . So assemble a system . what are the component at very low cost (not want hdd). mobo with ide port.
  5. I do not think any current generation mb has an IDE port

    and the HDD is so old he should start with all new components
