So, I'm looking for some help putting together a very budget pc for a friend of mine. I'm talking used parts and open box items type budget, so please don't post anything without keeping that in mind. Here is what I am looking at:

CPU: Either an E2220 (already owned, great little overclocker)
OR
an E6850 Conroe for $80
OR
an E6300 for $40

Mobo: Either a MSI P6N Diamond for $60
OR
an ABIT AB9 Pro for $50

GPU: Either a 4650 (already owned)
OR
Two 7950 GT's SLI'ed for $40

We would need to buy a new PSU and RAM, but those are relatively low ball items. He's on a real small budget ($300-$350, and he needs to buy Windows), but he's running an old AMD single core right now, so we're trying to get him outfitted to at least be able to run some modern games on low to medium settings (he only has a 17 in monitor). Thanks for any advice.
