    I use to have a business of building and selling computers before the recession, most of the kids 16-12 wanted a 300 buck PC "for their parents" but they really just wanted mom and dad to get a new pc that could play CoD4 or CSS or wow
    If that was the case, why would I specify that it doesn't need to do more then just do emails and surf?

    ASUS eee box. You don't even have to bootstrap WinXP to use internet (and I believe e-mail.)

    Ugly pink version is 299.99

    Or, if you really want to build a box you could do this:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16856167032
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231163
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136195
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106300

    An MSI wind barebone, 2 gigs of 533 RAM, Intel ATOM at 1.6 GHz, an 80 gig HD and an 8x BLU RAY reader. I'd have to calculate power usage though, it is only a 65 watt PSU.

    An extra 5 bucks will get you 160 GB of HD space from the same brand (Western Digital.)

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136075

    All for around 300. Not to mention it's the size of a book.

    EDIT:
    http://www.thermaltake.outervision.com/Power

    Says it has enough power I believe. Someone else please check.

    I would say 65 watts is enough for an atom/2GB 553.

    Also, ditch the Blu-Ray drive. Nobody needs one yet.

    I have a budget build ready EXPRESSLY for the purpose of spending as little as possible.

    Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811147112 $30
    Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157160 $55
    CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103188 $40
    HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136195 $35
    PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817159044 $29
    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820134217 $16
    CD/DVD Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106274 $18

    For a total of $218

    I just can't lower the price anymore without significantly impacting the quality. (Like the PSU; I could make it $15 cheaper... if you wanted it to explode. Or I could get a mobo that's 10 dollars cheaper with a truly fail built-in GPU)

    Blu-ray, IMO, is the last gasp of a dying medium.

    I sort of did that on purpose, I thought to include a Blu-Ray drive incase the person likes to play Blu-Ray movies. If not then you get a less expensive build that is just as useful.

    Blu-ray, IMO, is the last gasp of a dying medium.
    It may be. I wouldn't be sure of that yet. I do, however, know a few people (myself not included) that actually use Blu-Ray.

    Has anyone ever bought a Rosewill PSU, or are you all just saying it sucks because of bandwagon hate?

    I use the ECS Elitegroup GF8200A ATX motherboard. It hasn't given me any problems.

    Edited:

    I use a 550W Rosewill. I run a 95W CPU and a 1Gb GTS 250. No explosions.

    this doesn't mean the case is good quality, functions correctly or will last a long time

    I'm using a Rosewill 750W, and it's worked perfectly so far, Also has a blue LED that lights up my feet .
    I had to change some stuff at the last minute to account for shipping, and here we are. No splosions.

    ...and then you have the people who'd rate the case as perfect because is has lights and a window and a door and other unnecessary things that do nothing to the actual function of the case and even if the case had partly fallen apart and had the airflow of a brick they'd still claim it's the best thing since sliced bread

    Thats not why I like it, it does it's job very well, I don't have a window on my case, but I like being able to see under my desk, because I keep stuff there. My case isn't perfect, and neither is my PSU, but they do the job to suit what I need. I said it's WORKED perfectly so far, not that it is instantly more powerful and likable because of the blue LED. It's just a nice touch. I would say Rosewill is more bandwagon hate than actual problems. If I built another computer, I wouldn't mind using one again.

    That's just unlucky. I've built at least 20 computers with Rosewill power supplies, and none of them have had any issues.

    Edit:

    None power supply related.
