    i want to build a cheapo system for my younger brother. im so busy with work its kind of hard to fully research all the parts.

    can you guys recommend a cheapo Intel (say 2.0-2.4ghz) and mobo solution and a vid card?
    nothing too major. i want to keep the entire system under $350.... if at all possible.

    I'd suggest an XPC from Shuttle, the cheapest Intel (if you have to go with Intel, cheaper to go with AMD), a $60 ATI 9200 vid card, and a cheap hard drive.
