OK ive decided im going to custom build a desktop pc, but ive got relatively low budget of about £200.
I havent started looking at parts yet but i figured the processor would be the place to start, then i could work from there. Any suggestions on which proccessors are good/bad also where are the best places to buy the parts, ebuyer? or aria?
Are core 2 duos the best for a small price?
well anyway my brother and dad both got hp laptops about the same time for same price and similar specs 2.0ish GHz 3GB ram with vista. brothers had C2D processor, dads had a dual core amd, but dads is much worse and slower than my brothers, I dont know if its just the processor but theres a large difference, I dont want to end up with a rubbish processor like that. Ive not biult one before but its something Id like to do. Also you know they say its cheaper to build your own, well does that include the OS because wont that eat up my budget? Actually I think the OS will be OK as I have some XP keys from when that free technet deal was on here a while ago, i might just have to "obtain" an xp retail cd. Any help would be really appreciated.
