My mistake. I just assumed 'Ash' was a girl.

I know that newegg is American, I was just giving an example of what is available for a rough price range.

Had no idea just how cheap hardware must be in the States then.

I don't know any British stores, so I'm really not much help.

Yup, I can recomend scan.co.uk. When I happened to be over in GB last summer, I had to order a flash memory card from them.

Bs|Archaon;3547882Oh yes, much less effort than earning the extra money that pre-builds cost. :)[/quote]True, however if one were to screw up whilst putting it together, and were to damage something, then money wasted.
vikke-viking;3548042And please for the love of god dont buy a AMD!!! The cheapest core 2 duo is as powerfull as the moust exspensiv AMD cpu.[/quote]Perhalps you could provide me a couple of links?

I highly recommend building your own PC, however, it's your choice.[/quote]Thank You for the links, though do make a note that I'm a guy, not a girl. :rolleyes: [quote=Bs|Archaon;3548366]He (if that's a woman then I'm moving away from here!) might want to buy from Uk stores though. Components are more expensive here - that build will cost more than £530. For example, a 4200+ (couldn't be bothered to look for a 4400+) costs around £100 here...which is nearly $200.
Indeed, I'd like something from the UK, it would help and be easier, plus I wouldn't have to wait so long. [quote=Rob™;3548443]My mistake. I just assumed 'Ash' was a girl.
Not this time it isn't ;) [quote=Bs|Archaon;3548559]www.scan.co.uk www.overclockers.co.uk www.ebuyer.co.uk

Already tried ebuyer, and forgot about overclockers, though will now go and look at them both. Thanks!

The cheapest core 2 duo: http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=430631 (its still a very good CPU)

The mid range option: http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=430633

And you mother board have to be a socket 775 (LGA 775) http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=531221

I build a computer for my father with that motherboard and the cheapest core 2 duo and it works like a dream.

Then one would be an idiot. :p

If you insist, Scan also does pre-built systems. Look for the 3XS link at the top of the page. No idea what they're like, but I think they got some good reviews when they started doing them.
