Upgrade my PC with £200

Hi All,

I want to upgrade my PC and have a budget of around £200.

I will need a processor, motherboard and RAM for this price.

I don't use it for gaming so no fancy GC's or anything like that is needed, nor the ability to overclock. Just a decent dual-core machine that will last me 2/3 years.

I've already got a good case, 3 SATA drives and an Antec PSU so just need the above.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Exactly what do you have already? Dual core + a gig of RAM + half decent mobo isn't exactly cheap.
£80 minimum gone if you want to go core 2 duo (the naff 1.6ghz 800 fsb version), 25 quid per gig of DDR2 from ebuyer deal (Kingston ValueRAM bought using ebuyer checkout) and a lga socker 775 mobo = ~£40 off ebuyer - your choice makes £145 or so. How W on the antec? Need onboard graphics on mobo?
My full system at the minute is:

Asus A7N8X Deluxe Mobo
AMD 2600+ processor
1.5Gb 333Mhz RAM
2x Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 drives in Raid 1
1x Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 not in Raid config
GeForce 6200 AGP Graphics Card
Antec TruePower 450W PSU

Got dedicated graphics (although it's budget), so just looking to upgrade the base components.
Fair enough should be doable enough then.
If the ram you have is DDR I'd grab 2 gig of DDR2 as the price is at an all time low right now (ebuyer deal in main forum)
then chuck in a 6420 for £110 (also in main forum)
Then perhaps this micro atx mobo?
£26 through google checkout plus delivery of your choice.
Total of ~£190
also try looking at [url]www.overclockers.co.uk[/url] as they have some good motherboard + processor + ram deals (although may be a bit over-budget).

Overclockers customer service is horiffic though - wouldn't touch em with a bargepole. Charges for an item being returned, then charges for testing, then yet more obscene postage charges should they find no fault? Even their own forums have horror stories about sending faulty products back multiple times eventually getting a replacement but racking up hundreds of fees in mean time.
Could go for this mobo http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/124950, had an asrock one myself and never had a problem:thumbsup:
