    firstly... what have u got already? and 300-400 wont get u much.. a conroe mobo costs about 100+ and core2duo is about 120+ (non retail 6300).. that doesnt leave much for ram and gfx
    plus you mite need a new PSU?

    firstly this is in the wrong forum, so you would need to ask a forum admin (via PM or something) to put it into a suitable forum for you

    you should get a few more responses then.
