Backup Computer Cont’d

Well I went out to where I buy all my computer parts to see how cheaply I could build a PC.  It ended up coming out to about just under $300.  This is with a small miniATX case, no CDROM drive, and a 320GB hard drive to get me started out.  I even put a celeron processor in it just because that is all I need is the cheap hard drive space.  I did put about 2GB of memory in it and I could probably knock that all the way down to 512MB and still be fine, that would probably save me another $30 but would still keep me around $250 plus shipping and handling.  So no new PC for me.  I did have someone leave a comment about using a laptop, unfortunately my girlfriend uses the one laptop in the house and I don’t have any spare laying around.  I do have my old Windows machine that is just sitting in the corner of the living room.  Its so loud though i would hate to leave it on all the time.  Ooh, but I do have an extra 80GB hard drive in that one I could use, that would knock about $100 off it, or whatever the cost of that hard drive was.  I might be back in business!!
