I am assuming this is all new. You don't want an extrenal HD, they won't work as well as internal ones.

Case: £47 Motherboard: £93.60 CPU:£137 Ram: £55 Hard drive: £55 CD/DVD drive: £15 Video card: £115 Power supply: £13

Total: £530(with shipping)

You get: Case with mouse, keyboard 500Watt PSU DFI SLI motherboard AMD +3700 with CPU cooler 1gb PC3200 ram 1 6800gt PCI-e 200gb HD CD/DVD drive

i can help you.

Processor: AMD 3500+ http://tinyurl.co.uk/fxl8 - £120 RAM: OCZ Dual Channel Ram 1GB (2x 512mb) http://tinyurl.co.uk/vgvp - £55.54 HD: Freecom 160GB USB 2.0 http://tinyurl.co.uk/ef5j - £74.99

Total So Far = £250.53

That leaves you £300 to spend on a GPU if you want it for gaming get a 7800GT if not get your self a 6800 or 6600GT.

Also do you need anything else, like a mobo, case, monitor etc or do you already have them?

I would wait on everything untill you get it. You may get a good PC that only needs a new graphics card. Or you can get a POS dell that you can't do anything with.

Now if it is a cutom built Pc , not a dell, HP, or gateway, then keep the CD drives, the case, and the hard drives. Then just buy a new motherboard, processor, ram and video card.

Wait and see what you get.
