    My classmate asked me to build her a computer. She'd like something in the $400 range but I think somewhere in the 500 range is more reasonable. It'll run Win2k or Winxp, and used for typing, internet, email, music...basic stuff.

    Can someone suggest a mobo with integrated vid, sound, and nic? Cuz that should cut costs if I don't hafta get her a vid card. Also I dunno any budget monitors, 17" or 15" flat. Any other suggestions?

    Case: Her choice $50
    mobo: MSI K7N2 $80.97
    cpu: Athlon XP 2200 $67.69
    ram: pc2700 512mb $68.46
    vid: Asus v8200 $83
    hd: WD 40.0gb 7200 $46.99
    cdrw: liteon 52x32x52 $36.90
    monitor: samsung 765mb $189
    logitech cordless keyboard/mouse optical: $50.50
    floppy: $7
    Printer: her choice $50
    speakers: her choice: $20

    Thanx all!
