    Cheapest Gaming PC COst, please Help

    I want to build a very Cheap Gaming PC, please Kindly advise and if pssible links to specific components will be appreciated. I have a very terrible problem of choosing stuffs for myself.

    Componets am looking for are mainly

    mobo
    processor or (bundle of both)
    fan
    heatsink
    case+PSU
    ram.

    I need a silent case. But please put in mind the the driving factor is cost.

    Cheers

    Can you answer a couple of questions to help people help you?

    1) Do you have a maximum budget you are willing to go to
    2) What kind of games are you wanting to play and at what graphics levels? Do you want everything maxed out?

    Not necessarily maxed out, just to be able to play the games with reasonable speed with no lagging or freezing. I ll love to play crisis, I bought one a while ago and I have not been able to play it once. budget £200 excluding the graphics card.

    With that budget i really dont think your going to get anything too powerful, meaning that you will be playing crysis on very low settings.

    its possible using older but still powerfull components

    socket am2?


    yup

    overclockers.co.uk/sho…813 some ram like this £35
    AM2 Socket 4600+ upwards £50
    ebuyer.com/pro…£55
    ebuyer.com/pro…844 mobo like this £56
    generic case with psu £20
    scan.co.uk/Pro…gle heatsink £12
    that was just a quicky and obviously u can shop around for prices but that will play games at decent settings providing u get a decent card to go with it
    i recommened ati x1950pro but if u look on avforums computer section some bargains do come up such as a x1950XT and x1900XT for £70 or so
    so that roughly is £180 but shop around and mix and match to suit yourself

    The voltage for the ram says 1.9-2.0 while the mobo specs says it supports 1.8v ddr2 dimms, is this gonna work together.

    Cheers

    this pc will play games fine might even build it myself as i have spare 250gb hard drives and a 7900gt lol
    but waiting hopefully for a vostro
