Thread: $500.00 computer

  1. #1
    My friend has a really crappy old slow computer, and his mom told him he can spend $500.00 on the parts but has to include everything , i will be putting it together for him. I was wondering on what suggestions you guys have for this guy? when i say it needs to include everything that means this:
    Monitor
    Vid card
    Harddrive
    DVD-rom/Cd-burner
    Floppy if needed
    Mouse/Keyboard
    Motherboard
    Ram
    CPU
    Speakers
    i mean everything but total prie including shipping can't exceed $500.00. i look foward to hearing all your awsome ideas, and thanx for helping my friend.

    My advice is keep EVERYTHING that you can from the old comp ie
    monitor, keyboard, mouse, case, floppy, cd drive, hard drive (depending on size), speakers (if has them)

    get a cheap dvd writer and replace motherboard, cpu, ram and video card.
    May need to replace power supply and various other items depending on how old the previous comp is

    For $354, Dell is offering the following:

    Intel® Celeron® Processor (2.40GHz, 400 FSB)
    Integrated Video
    Microsoft® Windows® XP Home Edition
    256MB Shared DDR SDRAM at 333MHz
    40GB Ultra ATA/100 7200RPM Hard Drive
    48X CD-ROM Drive
    Single Drive: 48X CD-ROM Drive
    17 inch E773 (16 inch viewable) Conventional CRT

    You can add a DVD burner with the savings. If your friend is not builder, you'll be tech support for life.

    That PC will not play any games made in the last half a year and i doubt it will play any future games though down to the shyte ram and no existant inbuilt graphics card.
