A Christmas suprise for my roommate.
I have an 18 y/o kid living with me while he goes to school here in town, he was living here with his girlfriend at the time and they were the two best tenants I could hope for. They kept their space tidy, they were quiet and helped with the house chores. At the end of last month she broke up with him over facebook (kids these days) and she grabbed all her stuff and moved out. He's been dealing with it ok but as a gamer with no games, consoles, TV, or internet I can tell he's pretty depressed.
At this time he's currently going to the library to use the computer so he can check his email. He's big into TF2 so I hatched a plan to build him a PC so he can play and not have to brave the winter to check his messages. The problem is the only spare parts I have kicking around are too old to run TF2 at any decent speed, so I was wondering if any goodjers out there would mind helping me put together a system for him as a Christmas surprise.
Here's what I have so far:
Windows license (Thanks Parallax Abstraction!)
I'm in the Ottawa area and I'm willing to cover shipping costs.
