also novatech and scan are very good. Novatech do a good range of motherboard bundles which come with motherboard, processor and ram all preinstalled so you just have to install it in a case and connect your drives. For the most part, building a pc is no more difficult than lego. The hardest part is normally fault finding if it doesn't work properly. Just take your time and you will be fine :)

Buy a Barebones System, and then add Video Card , Hard Drive, DVD Combo Drive.

Question you need to ask is this for gaming or just day to days things, if its for gaming you need a ATI or Nvidia graphics with a 128mb of Min.

and remember to get max of 3GB of Memory for XP, Vista 32bit and 4GB for 64 bit Version, just get 32bit version for starters.

use that to see what stuff you might want, then use other shops to find the thing at a cheaper price.

What I suggest is a site like this:

http://techreport.com/articles.x/16721

This gives the best *current* combinations available at different price points. First thing you will probably have to decide is the cpu manufacturer ie Intel of AMD. This will dictate the choice of motherboard. What I suggest is put a list together and then repost it here for us all to check. Be wanted however it is a a very opinionated subject so expect a lot of replies!!! Good luck with the build and let us know how you get on.

Tending to agree here. Page 10 of that guide I showed you goes on about operating systems. Obviously you haven't read it :(
