    My dad needs a computer for his office. I'm going to build him one.

    Mobo: GA-N680SLI-DQ6 (I own this already)

    Processor: 2.66 Ghz Intel Dual Core Processor (I own this already)

    RAM: Cheap 2GB of RAM? I found this:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148163

    HDD: Something cheap...

    Graphics Card: Something cheap that will run xp/vista (no games at all)

    Power Supply: Something cheap for the above

    Case: Needs to be cheap...



    I really want to keep this under 500$


    Also.. ON the mobo and the Processor, he's going to buy me these for exchange for mine and a new computer

    AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor Model HDZ955FBGIBOX - Retail
    Item #: N82E16819103674
    Return Policy: CPU Replacement Only Return Policy

    ASUS M4N82 Deluxe AM3/AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI AMD Motherboard - Retail
    Item #: N82E16813131383
    Return Policy: Standard Return Policy

    The above are 314.00$ combined with a combo deal.




    Please help!

    You should sell that N680-SLI, and just grab any G31 based Intel motherboard. It has integrated graphics, most cost next-to-nothing, and will have everything you need for an office PC.
    As for the power supply, just grab a small case that comes with a PSU, preferably 350 watts or so. That will run an office PC just fine.
