    Hey guys,

    Ordering some new bits for a friend who's after a rig just for general use with a little bit of photoshoping (no gaming as such), just wanted to make sure there was nothing wrong with the following:

    AMD Sempron 64 2800+ 1.6GHz (Socket 754) CPU
    Gigabyte K8N51GMF nForce 6100 Micro ATX (Socket 754) PCI-Express Motherboard
    OcUK Value 1GB (2x512MB) PC3200 184pin DDR Memory Dual Channel Kit
    Samsung SpinPoint P HD160JJ 160GB SATA-II 8MB Cache
    NEC ND4570 16x16 DVD±RW Dual Layer ReWriter (Black)
    Antec Sonata II Piano Black Quiet Case - 450W Smart Power PSU

    Total £293.34 inc VAT and shipping

    I know the mobo is pretty cheap, but it should still come with all the cables and stuff I'm likely to need, right?

    Anything worth changing?

    That should be fine, all the parts are compatible and the motherboard will come with all necessary cables i.e. SATA and IDE.
