    So my mom is looking for a computer just to play music on, store photos and videos and play solitaire. Along with internet activity and wifi built in. Also I need the cheapest computer I can get. So someone post the best parts and supplies i should get from newegg so i can start throwing it together. A lot beater than her buying a piece of shit at the store..
