I am buying components to make a PC for my sons upcoming birthday.
I have come up with the following components from Scan.
Any advice, recommendations, alternatives welcome.
Corsair Memory XMS3 4GB DDR3 1600 MHz CAS 9 XMP Dual Channel Desktop - £36.14
Asus M4A88TD-M EVO - £77.86
AMD Athlon II X3 450 - £59.98
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro - £15.23
1TB Seagate ST31000528AS Barracuda 7200.12 - £38.39
dimax EW-7612PIn 300Mbps Wireless 802.11 b/g/n PCI Express Adapter - £17.60
Samsung DVD Writer, SH-S223C/BEBE, SATA, Black, OEM - £12.53
I already have a case, a quality power supply and Windows 7.
We will make do with the onboard graphics for now, but look to upgrade later (birthday money permitting)
The motherboard will hopefully unlock the fourth core, and the cooler allow a bit of overclocking in the future.
This comes to a total of £257.73
Thanks for taking the time to look at this for me.
