MMM I never thought I'd be doing a spec me thread - let alone for a cheap as chips PC ! Anyway, here goes... This PC will be used for internet, word processing etc - no gaming (it's for my parents !). So, it doesn't need to be amazing, although I would like it future-proofed for a while to come if at all possible. I've chosen a lot of these components for silence as well. I have a monitor , keyboard, mouse and all software already. What I've come up with: Mobo - Gigabyte K8N SLi nForce4 - £59 CPU - AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (retail) - £73 RAM - GeIL Value 1Gb (2 x 512) - £65 HDD - WD Caviar 80Gb - £34 GFX - Sapphire ATI Radeon X1300 256Mb - £52 Case & PSU - Antec P150 & 430W PSU - £80 = £363 (inc VAT) The mobo and gfx are passively cooled (I'm not bothered about the SLi obviously). RAM was chosen as GeIL Value is excellent stuff, likewise the HDD. For price sake, I had to get a case-PSU combo, and this is nice and silent. CPU - because it was the cheapest one! So, what are your thoughts people? Is there anyway to take that price down a bit?
