Let's see, a cheap 500 Watt power supply will run you about $20. Amd Sempron-$36. Motherboard-$50 (For the Sempron). 2 gigs ram, $50. IDE hard drive-$40. DVD player $15. That's $211, and we do not even have a case yet. Drop the memory back to one gig, and you are down tp $186, but still no case, and no shipping. The parts I priced all go together, and you would have a functioning system. Of course, you have no mouse, keyboard, and no monitor.

You would have a machine that you could use for email, internet, and not much more.
