    Complete cheap PC.

    As title really, I was thinking of -

    Athlon x3 435 ~ £62
    Asus mobo M4A78STD-M ~£71
    Crucial Ballistics DDR3 1333 2x2Gb ~£94
    Cheap case ???
    520Watt Seasonic £70
    Pioneer dvr ~£20
    Samsung F3 500Gb ~£40
    Windows 7 HP OEM ~£80

    LG LED Monitor E2250v ~£159

    So as you might have guessed I was basing it loosely around the cheapest iMac with the 500Gb hard drive.


    But, any sensible adjustments for cheap 'bang for buck' system.

    Re: Complete cheap PC.

    I would have a look at the following parts:

    AMD Athlon II X3 440 ~ £66

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/191955

    ASROCK M3A785GMH/128M ~ £60

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/179183

    OR

    ASUS M4A785TD-M EVO ~ £69

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/170277

    4GB Crucial 1333MHZ DDR3 ~ £94

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/179278

    OCZ 400W Stealth XStream PSU ~ £30

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/152505

    OR

    Be Quiet 530W Pure Power PSU ~ £44

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/190751

    Pioneer SATA DVD rewriter ~ £18

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/177398

    I would stick with the Samsung F3 500GB and I would consider the Coolermaster Elite 360 for the case.

    Re: Complete cheap PC.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. The build was for an old guy on another forum I belong to. I wasn't sure on the PSU but, you soon corrected me. I'm not sure he will build it now as he has bought a laptop .
