My System Specs


Wouldn't buy socket 775 new. A month ago I built my parents a computer for the same use an it was just over $500, included tax and windows7 and had free shipping.

It was i3 540 and msi H55m-e33 motherboard combo ($190...though now I would go for i3-2100 for around the same price).
cx-430 PSU $30
CM elite 330 case $35
Ripjaws ddr3 1600 2x2gb $40
seagate 500gb hdd $35
lg burner $15
windows 7 $99

You already have case and power supply, so that would knock $65+tax off the price I paid and if you don't need windows thats another $100 +tax off the price.
