PC/Base Unit/Components Advice?

    Looking into building/purchasing a new Base Unit, but out of touch with the current market for buying new components, then building from scratch myself?

    Can anyone advise/suggest a good setup for approx £200, either ready built or components please. PC is used for word processing, email, internet and very rarely a little photoshop work. Windows XP/Vista not essential but see what you can suggest?

    Case with PSU
    DVD Writer
    RAM/Memory (2gig)

    Anything I've missed? Already have keyboard, mouse and TFT.

    That's a pretty poor processor

    Have a look at some novatech barebones. Or Scan often have cheaper DIY kits on their 'today's specials'
