    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?

    oh, and this is a similar case to what hes getting....he should be happy w/ the light

    and hes getting my old MX440.....he wants it to be able to handle AIM so that should be enough...

    i feel sorry for the kid....and the parent....hope they dont find out how crappy this ocmp is...but it shoud be find for surfing the internet and occasional gaming right?

    no...im giving him my case....i cant find any dvd burner that matches my case color so i was looking for a new case, but now, im giving it to him and getting money to buy my new case

    they are giving me about 350-400....the total cost of that is 200...meaning ill have 150-200 for a new vid card and case

    but most cases on new egg ship for $15 dollars


    if they give me $400, that gives me enough left to get a 9600xt and a new case....w00t w00t i love life
