- Corel DRAW 7 for three bucks. It's a pretty old version, but an unbeatable price. Far as I can tell, the difference between the "Select Edition" and the standard one is the amount of clipart and fonts that come with the program. The program itself is fully featured. If you don't have a good vector-based draw program (like the free one MS has been giving away), get this one.
- Pure isometric hack-n-slash goodness for two bucks
- MS Word 2002 and MS Works 8.0 for $25. Good if you don't have an office suite and you want a good one cheap.
- McAfee Virus Protection for a buck. Includes a year's worth of virus updates.
