No need to be mouse, keyboard or monitor, speakers. He basically surfs the net and checks email but plays very minor games, nothing what we do. His system is screwed up and I don't have enough parts to fix it or give him another. So if someone has a decent one they wouldn't mind getting rid of in the $200 USD to $300 USD range I will greatly appreciate it. Let me know, I told him to give me a few days to check. If not, Ill take a gander at his and see if I cannot fix it.
