    Cheapest PC build EVER!!

    Right, one of our computers in the lab has gone down...well, its internal clock is knackered and the company we got it from doesn't have any more info other than the name of the machine and person who ordered it. its probably pre-internet too...!
    so, need to build a cheap but stable computer, so we're not looking for AND 64x or anything like that, just a decent replacement that will be fine for the next few years... the previous one is a pentium (nothing else, just a pentium, not 2 or 3) 166 I believe, with 32mg or ram some how someone had crammed windows NT 4. onto it
    so, to replace it we'll need mobo, cpu (socket A?), hdd (40-60gig), gfx...maybe a psu too. we have a case and drives.
    where's the best place to look or can you come up with a solution?

    Is the case and psu ATX compatible? Both of the P1's I had were the older AT format.

    What about an ASUS Terminator base - I think they're about £60 (case/mobo/psu/floppy/cd?) plus a 1.8ghz duron for £23 (ex vat), add 256mb ram (£14), and add a hard drive (40gb £25 ex vat) total around £125...
