yeah but the thread direction at that point and time was leading to a gaymen pc
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
That's what I was thinking of when I mentioned the Eee Top earlier.
Or, if you really want to build a box you could do this:
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.)
All for around 300. Not to mention it's the size of a book.
Says it has enough power I believe. Someone else please check.
I have a budget build ready EXPRESSLY for the purpose of spending as little as possible.

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)
Rosewill low range PSUs are OK.
since when can you read Blu Ray disks with DVD readers
Who said she's going to watch blu rays with it?
Rosewill makes great PSUs. It's one of the few brands I trust.
Has anyone ever bought a Rosewill PSU, or are you all just saying it sucks because of bandwagon hate?
Would be better to go prebuild in this case.
"hey guys, I bought this cheap case and it functions like a case normally would"
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.
