    Why not go for a non-SLi board, it'll probably be cheaper.

    Also, you can pick up a 3500+ for £74.60 from Scan.

    This is cheaper:

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=209793 (Athlon 64 3000 @ £61 inc vat)

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=273376 (Abit KN8 SLI @ £59 inc vat - this has a heatpipe cooler, so no noise and will likely o/c better than the ASUS if you want to o/c)

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=368193 (7600GS @ £75 inc vat)

    If your budget can stretch, then alternatively go for this:

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=380696 (7600GT @ £128 inc vat)

    Total = £195 or £248 depending on which GFX card you go for.

    Finally, you qualify for free shipping with scan by virtue of the fact you have posted more than 25 posts here at Hexus - you just need to register for it.

    Edit: Emphasis added.

    How about this:
    512Mb Asus 7600GS Mem Clock 540 MHz, GPU 400 MHz, 12 Pipes, D-Sub DVI-I S-Video/TV Out £96.57

    AMD Athlon 64 3000 + Socket939 , Venice Core, 1.8GHz , 512KB Cache, Retail £60.92

    Asrock 939SLI32-eSATA2 ULi M1695, S939, PCI-E (x16), DDR 400, SATA II, SATA RAID, ATX £52.28

    Total £209.77

    Just over £200 but its ready for SLI of the 7600 if he can afford it at a later date. Graphics card has SM3.0 support so its better in terms of futureability

    they are all good options, maybe go for the 3500 though as it seems to be only a weee bit more expensive.
