does she have another parts left?  If just for browsing the internet and solitaire,, grabbing an ssd will seem like a huge upgrade to an aging pc.   Dasa parts guide does have the cheapest gaming rig sticky thread, 1st page.  But you could get away with all used parts possibly it sounds like.  Like on the below cpu, ebay you can get it used for probably under 100... Get a small ssd with 120 - 240gb...  Can grab even slower/cheaper ram and psu, but a good reference is below:

What CPU and how much RAM?

As mentioned a SSD with a fresh install maybe all that is needed.

But if it is a old atom like the laptop I recently tried to speed up it will still be sluggish and stutter playing utube at 480p.
