    I am helping a friend not buy one of the readymade POS boxes sold in the big box stores. Need some help.

    Budget: 500-550 (including Win 7 OS)
    Computer for everyday use at home. No special needs. intends to hook up a 32" TV/monitor for display.
    No OC reqd... but might crank it a bit if there is headroom and no heat issues.
    No gaming.
    HDMI reqd.
    Intel/AMD no particular preference.
    Please invoke your creative skills and help me create this rig.
    Thanks!

    Thanks for the ideas folks!
    Much appreciated.

    Any chance we can make an i3 work within these constraints?
