    Any advice on a cheap build PC

    I already have a case, but its an old dell non tower one so probably hard to install. and I own a 350W PSU which is all thats needed.

    Specs need to be

    40 gig Sata HD(or more)
    I already own a mobo
    Pentium 4
    fan/heatsink
    Maybe a case
    DVD recorder(though can get cheap)
    A very basic graphics card(well 256tmb PCI'e) mainly for old games like WOW or Medal Of Honor the original.
    I own a stick of DDR2 ram but would appreciate some more cheap(about 1 gig or more but 512 is ok)

    My mobo supports Core2duo so im building a cheap one for flatmate and in a few months when hes working he can just change around CPU and have a great PC.

    Call your local PC engineer and ask for a price.

    After all, we have all seen what can happen when your let near any PC's

    As for that lol it was a mobo problem got PC world to replace it.

    Are you wanting to upgrade or actually start from scratch?

    Budget?

    Start from scratch which is why I asked about a heatsink and fan,

    I own a mobo and PSU so its only a case, CPU fan hard drive and DVD burner.

    Hopefully no more than £100 to be spent.

    IMO Zalman CPU fans are the dogs dangles for the cost! (Although range from £20+)

    HDD?, This ones cheap : ebuyer.com/UK/…301

    Dvd-rewriter?, This is a very good speed!! : ebuyer.com/UK/…442

    Case : ebuyer.com/UK/…b/0

    Only thing with cases is you get what you pay for!

    Well speed isnt an issue, probably just buying 8x media anyway, and hes not bothered about waiting 20 or so minutes for it to burn.
