    Components For Office Machine

    Hiya all, iam after some help with a build.

    I want to build a unit that is high on performace but low on high end features so things like PCI-E and high end gfx would not be required.

    What i had come up with so far is the following.

    Processor

    AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Venice Core 64Bit 512k L2 Cache Retail inc.Fan skt 939
    £104.87

    Motherboard

    Unknown at this time, onboard sound, lan, agp, things like this would be needed, sata wouldnt be needed overlocking needs are not required but something stable and skt 939.

    Chassis

    Not Found (Something Compact like the dell one's seen here)

    Memory

    Corsair Value Select 512mb DDR3200
    £32.66

    Hard Drive

    120GB Seagate Barracuda 8mb Cache 7200rpm ATA100
    £52.17

    Graphics

    Sapphire ATI Radeon 9250 256mb DDR, 8x AGP, DVI, TV Out Retail
    £36.31

    If their is anything i have missed please add it to this post as it will help me mostly with this build.

    Cheers
    Rich

    would do you?

    Yes, the board supports PCI-E, but it already has integrated ATI graphics anyway, so you wouldn't need a PCI-E card. BTW, I'd invest in a couple of those DIMMs - you'll want them if you do go for an MATX board with integrated graphics since the graphics'll use some of the memory, and dual-channel in general doesn't make a big difference to a system with discrete graphics, but with integrated graphics it can make a hell of a difference. The integrated graphics, by the way, should be at least as good as if not better than the 9250 card.
