Need a budget computer advice would be great
I need to build a computer for under 400$ including tax and shipping. I dont need a monitor, keyboard/mouse, speakers or a CD of Windows Xp. I dont want to buy one, I want to make it.
I need this computer to access the web and to taxes on (for my dad)
I will not be playing games on this computer.
What i need...
Video card if not built into MOBO
Hard Drive... no bigger than 40gb need a reputable brand though.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
NO MORE THAN 400$ shipped + tax

Thanks, how are MSI motherboards? The one I am looking at is 55 dollars at the egg? Are they reliable.

depends on the type of board. what are you going to be doing with this computer? if youre gaming then i suggest either a 6600gt or x700pro. both are around the $100 price range.

sorry about that. you should probably go with the setup that flip-mode suggested then except get a larger hdd. you know, you could probably save alot on parts if you just bought a cheap socket a cpu and mobo. the cpu's could be found pretty cheap on the FS/FT part of this forum.

Flip-mode posted an excellent list of parts that I'd agree would be suitable for you. Add in the Fortron 400w Blue Storm (very nicely priced) and I'd say your set. There is another much lower priced PSU that should be just as good, but I can't access newegg.com (their site is down.... )
