I am wanting to build a gaming pc in the future. But, as of now, I am wanting to build a cheap starter pc that will be for web surfing. I am thinking of using some old parts from an 2001 dell dimenion 4300 desktop. I have a compact disc cd-r/rw, a compact disc dvd rom, and a seagate 40Gb barracuda ata IV I can use. Or should I do all new parts? Thinking a budget of $200.
You may want to check if the parts you have are IDE or SATA. A computer that old may be using the IDE interface, and may be irrelavent in today's world.

I agree with TechNoob, I had a look and couldn't see any possible improvements to that suggested system at that price point.
