    £250 / CPU and a Motherboard needed help!

    The rig will be used alot for photoshop and other graphic tasks and will also be used for a little gaming here and there, and it needs to be compatible with a 512MB XFX 7300GS card.

    So is there anyone out there that can suggest some CPU and motherboards for a total of £250, i know its tight but heh. Thanks

    isnt the 7300GS 256mb onboard, and then shares 256mb of system memory?

    if soo, its a real pooper of a card, and very low end, you will be very dispointed with it.
