    Grab a sandy bridge pentium and use onboard graphics. Thats about $60 and you wont beat that price for cpu+gpu. Grab some 1066mhz ddr3 for $2O for 4gb and a cheap matx motherboard for $50 and your halfway there. Plenty of power for web browsing and even hi def blu rays.

    Also that phenom II 550 has the potential to unlock with a 710SB chipset board. (something to think about)

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    And you already own it so why not build upon that chip.




    Like how three Amd guys chime right in together.

    Board listed is an 880G with an SB850 (even better than SB710 for unlocking) and supports AM3 and AM3+, for $59 it is a really good deal ;)
