    Where to buy custom built PC's with the spec listed below?

    I have a project that I am doing at present that involves building 16 PC's for an office.

    Spec Required is:

    Case
    PSU
    System board
    160g/b HDD
    2ghz CPU
    1GB Ram
    DVD Rom or R/W Drive
    No O/S required as company will be using their own

    Budget £150 per machine


    Can anyone point me in the direction where I can buy the above within budget.

    Thank you for your help. Rep will be added.

    Great start, thanks m8. Rep added :thumbsup:

    Hmm, always be sure to check ebuyer. I built a budget PC for...£120. Their prices fluctuate on a daily basis. Let me see what I can find.
    PSU/Case £23: ebuyer.com/sea…e=1
    Mobo £32: ebuyer.com/sea…e=1
    DVD: £7.50: ebuyer.com/sea…e=1
    HD: £28.41: ebuyer.com/sea…090
    RAM: £8: ebuyer.com/sea…e=1
    Pro: £30 ebuyer.com/sea…e=1

    That's under £130.

    So you can afford to get a dual core processor with that and a nicer case, or the non-value RAM. Although value works just fine. It's in several machines I've made.
    Up to you really.

    Huh..? My post is missing. I just found a load of components for you..and posted it..

    Any way, a short version of what I posted:
    Use Ebuyer.com You can make a system for less than £130 with basic components, however if you got a £150 you can get the non-value stuff or a dual core processor. =)

    If you want I'll help you find the components if you need them posted.

    Here you go as it's for a company i have put 2 prices in without VAT £131.35 & With VAT £151.09

    It has a Dual Core CPU and a lot faster then 2ghz, you could get this for £20 if you get really cheap bits and slower CPU but I have made it £20 cheaper then what you have (If you dont pay VAT) and £1 more if you do, gve me a shout if you want a hand Ths was at ebuyer BTW

    For your budget I deffinately go with the Athlon 64, decent power for a budget price, with 2gb memory and this board it'll kick ass for only £70, you coule always upgrade certain areas....I would deffinately go with 2gb min of ram as in an office PC you'll see the difference

    Good post

    OP I would go for the CPU I put in, as you will tell the difference, the memory is cheap and would save you £20 after buying the amount you are but go for my M/B to save you the pennies

    I agree, the CPU you posted is better but £3 more, there'll probably be enough bucks left for that upgrade, i'd go with the motherboard and ram I chose though, better on board graphics and lets face it budget ram is budget ram so may aswell go for the cheapest

    You mnight wanna find out about networking, they'll likely only have 10/100 but if on the off chance (like my office) they have gigabit then you'll need a motherboard with gigabit support

    so for the £3 extra for the CPU you would get yours, but the nearly £4 for your M/B is ok??? lol
    I would rather get the cheaper M/B and better CPU then better M/B and cheaper CPU as the faster CPU will be just as fast in both, and the same price for either combination, but the faster CPU and cheaper M/B will b e faster then the other way round.

    For what the OP wants I would go for my M/B still and my CPU, but your cheap RAM as cheap RAM is cheap RAM, I totally agree lol

    Also I agree with you about the Gigalan but i dont think its that important if the company did not mention they wanted it.

    £2 extra for a black case instead of normal PC box colour lol
