    Hewwo.

    I'm looking to build a rather budget system to act as a bot server for mIRC, and also a fileserver. I have around $600 to spend on it, and want a new hard drive with it. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    firstly, do you have any old parts that you can use in it?
    eg:
    old pci video cards
    old NICs

    how big do you want the hard drive?

    just a start, i'll ask more later :)

    At that sort of money ur gonna be looking at a low end Duron, all in 1 mobo like the MSI 6378-L, 20gb drive. You will definitely need some of your own components if you are gonna make it under that $600 mark

    lets take note he is NOT in the USA (USD). Since I have no clue on how things work out in Aussie, I will leave this up to your fellow friends that are a bit closer to you!

    You don't need a very big pc to do what you have stated above...

    for 600 AUD, you wont be able to get a very good PC, if you have to buy a monitor for it, you wont be able to get one at all. Lets say you have the monitor and need everything else.


    Duron 850 - $82.50 (w/cooler)
    MSI-6378 - $150
    256MB PC133 - $75
    40GB HDD - $145
    Cheapy generic case + PSU - $55
    52xCD Drive - $50
    Keyboard/mouse/other junk - $50


    Theres your 600 buck system
