Sub £200 Computer Engine (CPU/Mobo/RAM)

Idea being that you can add budget components for around £70 for a sub-£300 budget computer, or expensive components for a nice mid-range machine.

Here's what I've just ordered:

£58 - CPU - Intel Pentium Dual-Core G6950 2.80GHz 3Gb Cache (Socket LGA1156) overclockers.co.uk/sho…-IN
£70 - Mobo - Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2H Intel H55 (Socket 1156) DDR3 microATX overclockers.co.uk/sho…-GI
£58 - RAM - 4GB (2x2GB) Corsair XMS3 DDR3 PC3-12800 (1600) scan.co.uk/pro…65v

That's £186...not bad...can get a system up and running for as little as £250 based on that, which would be a cracking computer!
