I am building a new system for my parents to get them out of the 66Mhz FSB era.


They have a copy of XP upgrade and a 120Gb HDD. I have a X800GTO AGP. I would like to spend less then $250 on the rest. So far I have found.


Linkworld case with 430W PSU, Black. $23.99
Foxconn 748K7 Mobo $34.00
Corsair Value RAM DDR400 2X 256Mb $40.50
AMD Sempron 2400+ Retail $80.00
Lite-On CD-R, DVD DL $40.99
Newegg.

Any suggestions? Complaints?

I already feel bad about the case and PSU, but people seem to like it.

No Complaints Just some suggestions to look at.



Super Case PC-194KM
Comes with USB keyboard and mouse.
On sale right now at Microcenter for $39.99 was $59.99, I just bought one last week thinking about building a system for my granddaughter (6 yrs old).
It's a decent case I've been messing with it all morning.

Sony Cd-DVD RW-DL $38.99 with 25pk free Verbatim CDR Media and free shipping. Newegg #DW-Q30A BK-OEM
There nice drives I have two of them for cheaper systems and they seem to work better that two other brand name retail DVD burners I have in other systems.

On the memory I think I would just go with 1Gb from the start. CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) at Newegg for $76.25
Newegg Memory

If you buy from both places it's not much more than you wanted to spend even with the extra memory. About $45.00 it looks like.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
