  1. Hello All,
    i am trying to get a desktop for my kids, I am debating should I buy them already made PC, or build one. Can anyone help with a ready made PC's that are around 400-500 dollars, I saw a E-machine in costco which was around 400 but I know that that is a very low grade PC, is dell a good brand or should I just built one?
    The kids basically need a PC to do there homework on it and serf the web as well as using the email, there would be no gaming done on this PC.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks again
    Jon

    Not counting the cost of a monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers or OS, I can build a Windows 7 Intel based PC for under $300
