~ £160 for core2duo E6600
~ £80 for a descent motherboard
~ £50 for 2 GB Ram
~ £50 for 200GB sata hdd
~ £50 for a case
~ £80 for psu

these are only average
I can have a look for you which exact models if you want

thats left you £190 for your monitor
if you buy off ebuyer buy it separately and get another £30 off using google checkout
then you have £220 for monitor
you can get the very sexy samsung 22" lcd for £220 from pc world
What will you use the machine for? Gaming? Internet? Email? Word processing? Web Design? Photo editing? Movie editing? Paperweight? :giggle:

That answer of course leads on to a whole host of other questions:

What graphics card do you have? Is it AGP or PCI-E? That will make a lot of difference to what you can buy and also to what is worth buying (not much point having a top spec system with a pants graphics card for example).

On the subject of monitor, what size are you after? CRT of LCD?

Do you need a keyboard and mouse? If so wireless or wired?

Do you need any networking capabilities? If so wired or wireless?

Do you need speakers?

Do you need an operating system? If so Windows (XP or Vista?) or Linux?

How much storage (size of hard drive) do you think you will need?

Do you want a CD-drive? DVD-drive? CD-writer? DVD-writer?

What sort of size case were you thinking of? Full tower? Midi? Mini? Micro?


Let us know roughly what you're hoping for and we should be able to point you in the direction of something pretty nice for the money. :thumbsup:
