At walmart I picked up an emachines 250-1162 for 228 bucks a few months ago. Why build?
I want to build a micro tower desktop for under or up to $300.00
All I need it to do would be the following: Microsoft Office, E-mail, surf the web, listen to music, skype, But I can get a webcam on my own, aim, and stream videos. I do not care for that hdmi and hd stuff. Vga is fine for my purposes.
Is it possible to do that up to $350.00
If so...can someone please help me with the parts I need? Or should look at.
I only need a 160gb hard drive max. I don't have that many or plan on having that many files. I also have a portable hard drive for the matter. I just don't always wan't to use my laptop.
Also, idnc if its intel or amd nor do I care about the mother board and all that stuff. As long as I can do all that stuff smoothly I am happy. And also be a micro tower. I do prefer a micro tower case as I said before.
The monitor I can get on my own and a usb wireless network adapter as well. Also, I'd like usb 2.0 ports. Bluetooth is not necessary nor is firewire necessary.
If someone can give me a price quote for the hardware I would need to spend to make this possible, that be great.
