    Well, what is she doing on this computer? Is she gaming, or just using it for work. You can save her a great deal of money, build a computer for <350$ that will do everything except games fine.

    hrmm, well in that case I guess your selection is rather good for the cost..

    Other than the mention of the PSU there, I would change out the CDRW to a liteon 52x (sold at both newegg and zipzoomfly for 28$). Its the best CD burner available today.

    Just for the hell of it, he is the cheap 350$ systems I build for workstations. I find them very stable. I mustve built close to 100 last year, just of this configuration(or very close to it) They are not for doing any serious work though.

    CPU:
    Sempron 2200+-2400+ 60$-65$
    MSI Km4am-V 58$
    Corsair 256MB PC3200 40$
    WD 40GB 7200 rpm w/cable 55$
    SLK3700AMB w/350w 70$
    Liteon CDRW 30$
    Floppy 15$
    _____________
    335$

    Logitech keyboard and optical mouse usually cost 25$ or so...

    Up until a short while ago I was putting AXP's in it.. but they have risen in price quite a lot. You can probably do better than the slk3700 w/ 350.. maybe get a fortron psu, in a cheap case.. but for the extra 30$, I like the slk3700 case from antec.

    Its as cheap as you can get right now..

    As for the athlons I was using them up until December. They are hard to find cheaply nowadays... The Semprons are dirt cheap... Its a small performance hit, but costs less.

    In some places though, they havent cost adjusted the prices yet... You might be able to find a few sites with overstocks of AXP's... get them almost the same price.
