My brother wants to build a computer soon. He mainly wants it for listening to music, browsing the net and playing the odd WoW. He has £500 to spend and ALREADY has a case(no psu). It would be cool if you could base it around the conroe e6300 if possible. As we are in the uk please use british money and websites if possible. Thanks for accepting the mission, good luck soldier! :cya:

Your Computer:

Laser Drives: LG GoldStar GCE-8525B 52x32x52x CD-RW/CD Burner (1) LG GSA-H10N 16x DVD +/- RW Dual Layer (1)

Keyboard/Mouse: Logitech Cordless Desktop Keyboard & Optical Mouse (1)

CPU: Intel Core 2 DUO E6300 "LGA775 Conroe" 1.86GHz (1066FSB) - OEM (CP-135-IN) (1)

Heatsink: Cooler MAster CI5-9JDSB-0L LGA 775 silent Heat Sink with Fan (1)

HDD: Kingston KVR400X64C3A/1G- 1GB DDR 400 PC3200 Memory Module (1)

Monitor: Aver AOpen F2705 (1)

Motherboard: Asus P5ND2-SLI Socket 775 (1) *is compatible with CPU

PSU: Enermax Liberty 400W (1)

Soundcard: Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 24 bit PCI

Speakers: Creative Labs Inspire P7800 7.1 Retail (1)

Video Card: BFG /3D fuzion GeForce 7300 GS 256MB GDDR3 PCI-Express (1) TOTAL: £558.78 tax incl.

Ya, I know I am a little over budget but chances are he might already have some of the items on my list including monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc. The video card should do just fine for WoW and any other games he wants to play. The speakers and sound card should provide good quality surround sound and I did build this computer around the conroe e 6300. If you have any other info or suggestions about my list then do tell. This total price is general seeing as how different stores have different pricing although I included tax it might not be the right tax. I got these prices off Wintronic Computers. The currency has been converted into GBP.

If you do not have or are not planning on having 7.1 audio speakers then scratch off the soundcard i provided. I also realised I forgot to add in the RAM although it was still in my calculation before. And yes you can use DDR2. I think that is it. Any other changes just send reply.
