Need Some Support For A Pc For =Ts= Foley

Question

After a few days and a long chat with our Aussie Division, It has come to our attention That one of our members, Mr =Ts=Foley, has only his school issued laptop to play with (unless borrowing his older brothers PC)

 

I have a dual core CPU and board, 4 gig of DDR 2 800 ram, and a 500 watt PSU.

 

What i would like to do, and i ask for you, the community, to help if you can, contribute to getting the items we do not have.

 

Thus far we need:

1 x mid tower or full tower

1 x dvd drive

1 x 1tb or 500 gig HDD

1 x Graphics card.

 

After looking at our local supplier, (here in queensland, Australia) I have found that we need AU$250 to build him a basic PC.

 

Foley's Birthday will happen on December the 2nd, and i would like to have this build and sent before then.

 

Delivery will cost $145,

 

I have the primary systems and i will cover the delivery cost myself.

 

Dearest members of the Crew, if you have a few pennies to spare, please let me know and i will hand along my Paypal details and i will post receipts and photos as the purchases are made, if i can get it all in one big hit, i will attatch a pdf of the invoice.

 

 

Help me make Foley a happy man and give the chance to get his own PC for some basic gaming.

What's the CPU you have, and what what can the board take for a GPU?

Edit: Oh, and do you know what the laptop he's using is?

a simple dual core 1.8 intel. The mainboard i have for him is a gigabyte GA-M61PME-S2 and i have 2 x 2 gig ddr2 800 sticks for him

he has an acer as1830, however, the NSW and QLD governments have a customer firmware that basically cripples the abilities of the laptop.

UPDATE:

 

As an Alternate, and if the pledges are enough, i can build an entire new system for $750 - $800.

 

This would allow me to build foley a entry level gaming computer using new stock and providing him a full warranty

It really doesn't have to be so expensive Alucard... I appreciate all of this, really, but it just seems so much and I feel bad. I will do all I can to help, but it's really difficult. Thanks everyone... You are great friends, I'm glad to be a part of this family!
