    i've decided to share the love amongst my sisters. what it is that i've decided is to build my youngest sister (9) a new machine.

    As to what specs are, i'm still not sure. it will be something along these lines......

    945 chipset MoBo
    8xx/9xx CPU
    1Gb ddr2 667
    7300GT
    80Gb SATA (WD or Seagate)
    450w PSU
    17in. LCD
    new case

    i want to keep it around $500 for this build. any ideas on what hardware specifically would be much appreciated guys :).

    Without the monitor, its under 500 bucks. Monitor is something like $179. This is kind of the PC that I built for my brother- except I put a 1600PRO vid card and a Pentium D 945 in his. Believe it or not, the case, while pretty inexpensive, is laid out pretty well (for a cheap case, that is).

    moved to hardware cd's :)

    I say ditch the LCD, it's an unneeded expense when they're that age.
    pick up a dirt cheap crt second hand and save yourself some pennies.

    yes, i am.

    i've been thinking, i might even build my aunt and cousin a machine exactly like this one, or one very similar to it. it would be quite an upgrade from their current PC....a 400Mhz AMD k6-2 w/128Mb SDR :eek:
