i need a CHEAP new computer...read for details...
alright, so this covers about 3 different areas, so i guess i'll just put it in here.
i need to build or buy (very cheaply) a new/used computer that has:
500 mhz pentium
128 mb ram
2 gb hard drive (enough for a win 2k or win xp install) i have software. i have a couple HDs lying around that i could use.
obvioiusly i need a floppy and a cd for install, but nothing good is required.
no requirements on video, so anything goes.
no modem or network cards.
no sound card needed.
must have 2 serial ports.
basically, i need a stable computer to sit an run a program... hopefully without rebooting very often.
i dont need a monitor or anything else.
oh, and i want to spend less than $200.
buy or build??
any specific suggestions on cheap components, mobo/cpu suggestions.
i need some quick input on this...
