How to build a $400 PC

We (meaning my father and I) had upgraded it a few times over the years, but it was a relic with a stuffed hard drive and some bizarre problems that even the strongest spyware and virus defenses couldn't work out. I found out when I tore that sucker apart that the CPU, an ancient Athlon, had a manufacturer date of 1999. It was time for a new computer for my mother, Janice Durham.

Thus, Mom had to pony up the dough for her new system. Her system's eternals were fine; the monitor, speakers, keyboard, and mouse could all make the transition just fine. She needed a new case and everything that goes into it.

Her budget was $400.
