<€300 Home PC


Dec 31, 2010
Hello !

Wasn't sure what to call the pc.. it's for my step-mom her birthday. She uses her PC only for things such as microsoft office and checking her email, but the pc she has at the moment is WAY too slow. If anyone could help me out finding the right components then that would be very much appreciated!

Thank you !

PS. I don't have any info on the current PC because it is not near me at the moment.
