Barebones is without the processor, hard drive etc... do you have a processor? If you do is it an AMD or INTEL and this will make a difference to what you can buy.

try ebuyer they offer cheap barebone and base unit systems. Failing that try pc world, currys, comet and see if you can get a good deal with some of the vouchers availble.

If you goto the Dell Factory Outlet ( [url]www.dell.co.uk[/url] ) And navigate through to the Outlet. There are system available from £170. No monitor included, but you do get a keyboard, mouse etc..
Look around because some systems are cheaper than others even if they have better specs.

Meant to say for example.
