okay, my mom's friends want me to build their kid (10yrs old) a computer....so i ask the kid what he want and he says....i want it to be able to run win98, and aim(yes, as in chat program)....
so basically, since im looking for a new vid card, and a new case...i could use my old case and my current vid card and just buy some cheap components to make myself some money...heres what im thinking
mobo and amd 1700 = 70 w/ ground shipping
40GB 7200RPM = $45
256MB buffalo rams...pc2100 for $30 on newegg
ethernet card for under 10 dollars
and a 17 inch monitor for 115 dollars on newegg
cd-r/w burner for 30
am i missing something?
remember , he wants this to run WINDOW 98
so i think that should be more then enough....right?
