so its my fathers birthday in a month and some odd amount of days and i think i have the right present . So he enjoys computers, he has this old socket 370 w/ 1.4ghz p-3 and 512mb of pc-100 ram, and he just cant afford to upgrade. His computer need's are rather limited. He plays starcraft once and awhile and would need something to reliably surf the internet and be fast So i have put together a list of parts im looking to stay within $250 (which is honestly pushing it in terms of trying to save up enough in time). But if i can manage it ill get it for him So first of all i have a micro atx case i can use, he has a 120gb hard drive, and dvd burner/reader, and a monitor. this is what i wanna buy http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16813128045 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16820145529 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16817153023 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16819103733 Total: $190.64 My only concerns are that his current hard drive and dvd rom are both IDE and the motherboard only has 1 ide controller. Should i maybe buy a sata hdd? Also i have a athlon 64 3200 laying around i might be able to use. I played CS:S with it fine... So any idea's...suggestions.....donations maybe j/p..
