As much as I love the look of the iMac, I can not justify spending $1,299 on a computer that I use for simple tasks. I do not game at all, no heavy photo editing, no heavy video editing, and I do not run demanding software. All I do is web surf, stream videos, use Microsoft Office, listen to music, and watch DVDs.

My old Dell (Intel Pentium 4) from 2005 is about to bite the dust and I do not want to sink any money into it.

Can you experts link me to the parts needed to build a computer that will be perfect for my simple tasks? The cheaper the better without sacrificing quality. Can this be done for around $500+/-?

I already have the monitor, speakers, and keyboard/mouse.

I've never built my own PC before, but there are plenty of resources available that show the process step-by-step. I'm confident I can handle the job.

I plan on running Windows 7 Pro btw.

Thanks!!
