    motherboard bundles

    right. My poor old pc decided last night that enough is enough and frazzled the motherboard.
    does anybody know who does the best deals on motherboard bundles? I'm lookin for anything fancy and i'll not be gettin vista anytime soon. I just need one to do the basics.
    Thanx!

    If you don't mind hanging around for a good deal keep your eyes on: ]http//sc…ly/ and ]http//ww…als they often have deals on such things.

    right mate ..I have just upgraded my mobo/cpu/memory and have a Asus socket A mobo/AMD athlon 2500/radeon 7500 graphics card that I could sell you for a very reasonable price..PM me if you're interested and we can discuss price.

    Generally prices are so tight that there isn't really a great saving on a bundle. I'm guessing you want CPU-motherboard and ram (are you happy with on-board graphics for now?). I'd strongly recommend getting a dual-core CPU and a DDR2,PCI-E system if you can afford it.

    Good basic system would be an AMD X2-3800 (]£40), 2x512Mb sticks of ram (]£24) and a mATX AM2 motherboard with onboard nvidia 6100 graphics (]£28). This will cost around £93 delivered from ebuyer, it may be cheaper elsewhere but unlikely by a large amount. Be warned you may need to get a new PSU also as most new motherboards require ATX 2.0 spec PSU.

    The setup currychops has (providing it has enough memory) may be a better alternative depending on what you already have, and an Athlon XP 2500+/Radeon 7500 is perfectly adequate for light to normal desktop use (not gaming) on XP.

    well I really want to see it complete with the CPU/memory and graphics card and was hoping for something like £50 for the lot.
