March 2012 School Computer

Since the never ending battle with building a school computer is keeping the cost down, I'm not at all surprised to see the budget of this PC being $750 which is my minimum.  For those of you wondering why I've imposed a minimum, the answer is simple.

You have to spend at least $350 dollars on a hard drive, case, power supply and tower.  If you decide to cut this back further, you really sacrifice performance in such a big way it's not cost sensitive.  The computer will be outdated when you buy it, so even if it runs for 5 years, you will get much less practical use out of the computer.

TIP! A Windows installation DVD, a monitor, keyboard, mouse and speakers are not included with this build.
