Hi I'm about to build a cheap computer for my friend's parents, I was wondering if you guys could help me pick out parts for it. Budget is around 500, preferably less, and it's only going to be used for music/Web browsing. If you could use the site please, as that's where I'll be buying the parts. Thanks in advance!
