    you didnt inlcude the maximum lowest budget you are willing to accept ex anything below 100pounds

    you may get a barebone and just plug a graphics card and a hard disk with around 150pounds.

    (though you said you dont want to make just a fast one:

    ASUS M2N-MX 42.61 (vga and sound is included)
    RAM 512MB 800hz 35.00
    AMD x64 3200 59.34
    HDD 80GB 31.00 total 167.95pounds))

    those for "new" systems, you could get an old pentium 3 or even amd 1800athlon far cheaper! (around 25pounds)

    If you really want as cheap as possible and will only be using it for basic tasks (i.e. word processing, internet, playing music etc) then Dell would be an option. Here's one for example (assuming you don't need a monitor):

    Intel® Pentium® D 820 Dual Core Processor (2.80GHz, 800MHz, 2x1MB)
    512MB DDR2 533MHz Memory
    160GB (7200rpm) Serial ATA Hard Drive with 8MB DataBurst™ cache
    48x CDRW/DVD Combo Drive
    Genuine Windows® XP Professional SP2 (Incl Operating System Re-installation CD) - English

    The 'e-value code' for this is 305-D01E02 and can be entered here: http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/to...hs1&l=en&s=dhs

    Remember to reduce the warranty to reach the final figure of £293.82.

    If that's not what you had in mind, maybe we can find something else.

    Hi there,

    The Dell looks good! Looking for something around the £200 mark and its just for my sister. All she does is go on msn and play the occasional track.

    Thanks

    Do you need a monitor for that?

    Have a look on the Dell Outlet. Can get some nice bargains.
