Am new to this site and would like to pick your brains. I am thinking about getting a new PC but do not have too much money to spend (around £500 mark).
I was thinking about building this myself. I haven't done this before, but I consider myself a little technical as I've replaced HDD's, memory, graphics cards etc. I was hoping someone could help me piece together a decent machine from cheap (costing) parts on the net. I need help as to which ones are compatible and will do the job I require and also exactly what I need to create a gaming pc from scratch.
I want to use it for internet (already have a wireless usb dongle so ok here), gaming (games like Call of duty 3, the new command and conquerer, Battlefield 2 and the new MS flight simulator, aswell as newer titles).
Will also need a medium - fast dvd burner and good memory so i can run a good few amount of apps at the same time.
I have an old IBM flat sceen monitor (don't even know the type off top of my head, am at work), so may need a new one. currently have an Pentium 4 pc with a 256mb graphics card and its struggling.
I don't need an operating system as I can put this on myself.
Appreciate any advice anyone has as i know this is asking a lot!!!
