BTW, the items for that $200-250 system wouldn’t include any sort of optical or hard drives. I have those already.
The current best system I’ve found is:
Antec Aria Case $99
Biostar TForce6100 $65
AMD Sempron 64 2600+ $60
256mb Memory $32
This is overkill for my application. The case is about twice the size I’m looking for and the processor is at least 3 times as fast as I need… I suppose I could even replace Ruri with this one. It’s also about $7 more than I wanted to pay, not counting shipping.
