Cheap Basic PC Build


Dec 4, 2007
Hi all, I'm looking to replace my Mother's ancient Dell 2400 Intel Celeron with something more up to date and was hoping that someone could put together a really cheap and basic PC. The only thing she uses it for is light web browsing (facebook mostly), youtube and the occasional email, so it doesn't need to be anything fancy at all.

She can keep her keyboard, mouse and monitor, but needs everything else. Let me know if any additional info is needed.
Preferred sites are, and

Thanks =)
If it is purely a browser platform then nothing fancy is needed;

Core i3 2100

Intel DH67CL

Corsair VALUE SELECT (either 8GB or 4GB depending on how many tabs are opened and multi-tasking)

I doubt anyhing more than 400W is needed! (500W) (400W)

Seagate Barracuda 320GB 6GB/s HDD (don't know your HD consumption)

Optical Device
