Something like this:

 

CPU: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00V4OWFP4/

Motherboard https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00V4OWFP4

SSD: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00RQA6TEI

Memory: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J8E8YSY

PSU https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004IZN3K2

 

That makes about 270. Add any microATX case and build is ready. In case you need DVD drive, there http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LVRIMHE

 

You didn't need OS?

Assume you want a pre-built computer?

 

Also what's the country you're buying in?

99% of the time, I edit for type-o's and grammar. I'll note it if that's not the case. 

I write near essays for most my responses, and then try to condense as best I can to the introduction of one. Less is more. Let me know if I post to much. 

I do a lot of spacing for readability. Let me know if that makes my posts seem to big.

Are you willing to build your own? It would probably save you some money.

Captain, you confused spybot and spyhunter XD
SpyBot search and destroy is a legit anti-spyware. I don't know if it's currently in development though.

Sorry...
Spybot is still not something I recommend. The malware has changed while spybot has stayed the same. Pcmag has a one star review for it.

Very true. Let's deal with software later after the hardware decisions are finalized.
