Malaysian German Society of Penang or MGS Penang ask me to come up with a cheap PC in a budget range of RM1000 to RM1200. So after looking through Garage Sales forum I decided to get a new system for them since it would be actually cheaper. Only the only part that was not new was the HDD which came from me.

When I went to get the final quotation after a 2 days from the request the CPU which I wanted, the AMD LE 1600 for RM153 was out of stock. Luckily, the price dropped down for the LE 1620 so I got it at the same price as the LE 1600. The motherboard also dropped in price from RM185 to RM175.

The specs:

RM153 AMD LE 1620 2.4ghz
RM175 Biostar NF61S-Micro
RM69 Kingston 1GB DDR2 667mhz
RM80 Maxtor 80GB 7200RPM IDE
RM95 Samsung 20x DVD Burner
RM510 15" ViewSonic VA503E LCD
RM150 Colorsit mATX casing
RM50 Labour/Service Charge
