OK. On that link I posted, the processors are listed from best (top) to worst (bottom), not sure of their current prices (as they are not current models),
but the highest you can afford would be the strongest.Depending on what your planning on doing, for instance gaming, $60 may not get a decent processor, being they are 'older'.

I have none for it. I gave 20 bucks for a case, motherboard, 8 gigs 1333mhz (2x4) memory and a 430 watt power supply. So all and all if I don't use the board I'll break about even.

The build will be for wife she mostly only "Facebooks" . I already have a pretty decent PC. She now has Pentium 4 Dual core with 4 gigs of 3200Mhz, so I the new build will be a improvment with the stuff I posted earlier.

A quick look seemed to show the X3's (tri-core in the 60$ range, it would definitely be an upgrade for her & should work well.
Quick question, Pentium 4's were single core I believe, when Intel went to dual core, they first called them Pentium D's.

Thank you for that info. And that is my mistake I only assumed it was a Pentium 4, it a Pentium and it is a dual core. And do Thank You for your time.
