    yeah i know, most of you are like, huh?

    my dad's dental office runs software that doesnt require a fast computer. anything from 700-1000 mhz works great. i put either win2000 or xp based on how much ram the computer has (i always have at least 512mb because it's a cheap upgrade)

    anyways, i'm looking for a computer around 1000 mhz maybe more, for under or around $200.
    heres what i need:
    case with power supply
    mobo with nic, sound, video, usb2
    512mb ram
    modem (he has to send electronic insurance claims and they use dialup)

    i can supply the hard drive and cd drive
    cuurently he has 3 computers, a 1200mhz amd built about 5 years ago (main computer), a 900 mhz amd custom built (second desk), a 700 mhz duron compaq (second desk), and a 233 mhz pentium 1 NEC (go ahead and laugh) back in his office - it runs the software as well as the main computer....i'm looking to add another at the front desk and he likes to keep things for as long as possible...or else i would have replaced all of them with decent identical machines, so i could just ghost an image if one broke down.
    other than ebay, does anyone know of a place online that i might be able to configure something like this?

    i can look and see what my grandfather-in-law's old computer specs are and see if they're within your needs. he just bought a new one and i've been tryin to figure out what to do with his old pos one rather than keep it in a corner in his basement.

    Actually, we have some small form factor GX100s with no operating system that are like 667mhz that might work - and they would be somewhat more reasonable to ship.
