    Motherboard bundles

    Hi, I'm going to build a pc for my son. I'm going to use my old case, graphics card and got a new power unit. So what I need is a good bundle with motherboard, memory and cpu. I'm looking for i5 maybe ddr3 memory and motherboard. I'm hoping to get it all for £200/300 max.

    So if anyone has information on a good place to get it from please let me know.

    the i5 tower from zoostation posted on here was well under£300 and would save you having to build it yourself. just add win 10

    Strange way to build a son... best just to have some unprotected fun in the bedroom.. lol

    Thanks for replying. ​I've seen that tower but I was thinking I would get a better board and fast memory if I got a bundle. Plus the case and and power unit are good enough for him to keep if he wants to upgrade in the future.

    For 200 - i5 6500 + cheap h110 board.. Make sure you get a board that is using ddr4.

    If you wanted to get it closer to 200 I'd use the same mobo/ram but get a i3 instead. Still plenty fast for games, though if your using anything faster than a 970/1060 etc you might be bottlenecked
