    How are the power supplies on Asus barebones and build recommendations??

    Does anyone know how good the 300w PSU on the Asus V3 series barebones system is??

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=583251

    I am thinking of using one as the basis of a system I am building for a friend.

    I am thinking of the following bits:

    AMD X2 4000
    Motherboard with the AMD 690G chipset
    1gb of RAM
    160gb Hard Disk
    DVD writer

    This computer will not be used for any gaming and is for work only. The most taxing thing it will run is a few image and data analysis programmes which run OK with 1gb very well.
    It will also be used for some image processing using GIMP.

    Budget is not more than 200 quid although if it is closer to 180 quid it would be nice!

    BTW XP and the monitor are already taken care of.

    I think they are pretty solid, there's one that was built at work around 5 years ago still going strong.

    Obviously not the same parts but asus are normally very good for both desktops and laptops so I wouldn't worry about it.

    You can build get a Case/PSU/mobo in seperate parts for similar money though.

    Any suggestions??

    I was also looking at perhaps the Akasa Zen or Antec NKS4000 with a Silverpower SP400??

    I do not want anything too brute looking or flashy as I do not think she would like it!!?
