EXPIRED

Barebones core2Duo PC wanted

My PC World one died and they wont replace it as they say they have none in stock, despite showing stock available on the site, when this morning when they phoned me they didnt.

Anyway if I cant get a replacement from them, I just want a barebones PC with a E4300 processor or above thats only requirement, preferably small case, but not essential, PCI'e slot, 1-3 PCI slots, slots for at least 2 SATA drives, preferably 2 or more ram slots(dont even need ram but would be nice to have 1 gig already installed.

And finally if possible a built in card reader DVD burner.

Yes, as I dont need an OS either, all I need is the case with mobo and CPU, I already own some DDR2 ram, a 320gig SATA HD and 7600GT graphics card and DVD burner which I purchased to add to old PC.

Though it would save me buying more when I get cash.

I did see a Core2Duo refurbished with Vista Home premium, E4300 processor 250 gig HD, 256mb 7200 Nvidia card, 1 gig ram and 18x DVD burner for £250 but thats my maximum budget.

I also saw a Core2Duo with XP home, but only 80 gig hd, and 64 meg 7200 and 512mb ram which was £180 but the processor was far faster(E6300)

I ideally want at least a E4300 processor.

couple of questions:
1-will u be overclocking at all?
2-does it matter what chipset the board is

No wont be overclocking or mind what chipset it is, as long as the mobo supports DDR2 and has a Core2Duo processor E4300 type or above, I have an OS, and other stuff I need.
