Building a PC - Advice needed.

£0.00 @
My son is planning on building himself a PC. He's seen a barebones bundle on ebuyer (link in next post) but is unsure of which cpu & ram (4gb) to go for. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Well he's going to use the bits from the barebones & then make it out of a cornflakes packet & sticky back plastic...

dont bother,
used to be a good cheap way of getting the spec you wanted and learning about pcs at the same time but prices have fallen so much you might aswel buy a pre-built one and save the hassle.

I've got a couple of socket LGA775 cpu's (one c2d & one dual core) if he's interested.

Thats a strange barebones on ebuyer.

A barebones usually consists of a case/PSU, motherboard, CPU and memory, all prebuilt, like these on Novatech

http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/barebones.html

You then usually add the hard disk, CD/DVD drive, graphics card (if it is not on the motherboard or you want a better one), and an operating system.

The one on ebuyer is just a collection of parts, not a barebone.

Barebones is a good way to start, but being honest it would probably be better to get him a subscription to a computer magazine and let him read about the stuff first. I can recommend Custom PC, they do some very noob friendly articles.
