    No point looking at S939 anymore tbh, even if he doesn't plan on upgrading anytime soon, better to have the choice available.

    DDR2 is cheaper than DDR now anyway, so what aidanjt said is certainly worth considering.

    so if i went for the 3600 dual core, it comes to about 160 odd. What is the x1550 liike for games? is the 7600GS a better card? Is it worth paying the extra to make it to the 200 mark?

    Sure, why not, if £200 is the budget, may as well get the most out of it. If your friend wanted to stretch it a tad he could get an 8600 for £80ish.

    depending on how decent your current psu is, you can get one of those molex-->pci-e power adapters, surely worth a try before shelling out on a new psu?

    8600GT is comparable to the x1950pro.

    300W might struggle assuming FSF isn't a great brand... Ideally you want a min of 400W with this spec as it will give you a bit of room to add a couple of hard drives or upgrade graphics if you need to... 350W will probably work too actually but won't have much left over if you ever need more power...

    CPU 65W
    GPU ~110W?
    HDD+Optical 20W
    Everything else ~50W

    300W will do, cutting it fine, assuming it's a high quality PSU, 350W would be on the safe side thou.

    New System

    hi there, give your specs and budget i would go for something like this, for you pc......

    Asus M2V Socket AM2 VIA K8T890 ATX AMD Motherboard
    YOYO Code - 4651 £40.78
    Antec NSK 4400 Black/Silver 0.8mm cold-rolled steel ATX Mini Tower Case 380W Powersupply
    YOYO Code - 8044 £45.81
    AMD AM2 Athlon 64 4200+ Windsor Core, 2.2GHz, 512KB x 2 Cache CPU Energy Efficient Vesion - Retail
    YOYO Code - 4906 £65.38
    Corsair 1GB Value Select DDR667 DDR2 2x512MB 240pin DIMM Memory
    YOYO Code - 3043 £43.60
    Palit 8600GT 256MB DDR3, 2 x Dual Link DVI, HDTV, PCI-E Graphics Card
    YOYO Code - 73526 £81.47

    Sub-Total: £277.04
    Handling/Shipping Charge :£11.99
    Total :£289.03

    POINTS
    i have gone for a new case, as you may find you have a problem with your old case if it was a evesham case, the Antec comes with an Antec 380w PSU, which would easily cope with the specs

    hope this helps
