I'd suggest looking on the BestBuy website if you're looking to buy from there.
Products -> Computers & Tablets -> Desktops & All-in-One Computers

Then decide how much RAM and internal memory you want. I'm assuming that besides open office and firefox, you're not going to run anything else on this computer so I'd recommend a Nettop Computer.

Here's an example:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+Eee+Box+Nettop+Computer+-+2+GB+Memory+-+320+GB+Hard+Drive/4995129.p?id=1218591020395&skuId=4995129

I would recommend an ASUS essentio desktop with 8gb of RAM. That is more than enough for your officing needs and it's well within budget.
I'd recommend getting a windows CD, and running CHKDSK from that since this error can be fixed with a ten minute scan, for free.
