Hey everyone, I posted a thread on building a budget PC for £170 a few months back. I decided not to go ahead with it and have since purchased two PowerPC Macs and bought and sold a Dell laptop. After looking back and doing research on various parts, components etc. I've decided to come back to the build and go through with it. So far I've bought a Mobo, CPU, HDD & RAM. I'm still in the process of picking up a case (with PSU) and an optical drive. The reason I'm building this 'cheap as can be' PC is to run basic Windows programs that I can't run on my eMac or my PowerBook, and for the fact I want to build a PC having never done so before, unbelievably. Here are the specs; Gigabyte Skt-AM3 M68MT-S2 Rev 1 Motherboard with Nvidia GeForce 7025 intergrated graphics (256 MB) AMD Sempron 145 CPU single core 2.8 GHz 4 GB DDR3 Kingston RAM 80 GB Western Digital Hard Drive (purchased as cheap as hell just to get the thing on it's feet, will upgrade to 320 GB or 500 GB in future.) CiT 2002 Midi Tower Gaming Case With 80mm Fan & 450w PSU Windows 7 Ultimate (And Windows 8 In The Future ) Although to most of you this build may look like a piece of ****** but to me, someone who's most powerful computer is a 2 GHz Core2Duo with 2 GB RAM I think I'll appreciate it more than most. Any thoughts on prices of parts, speeds I'll likely be able to get and what I'll be able to squeeze out of it? I'm a 14 year old teenager who has a paper round so I won't be able to stretch my budget any more as I'm also chucking half of my cash in a retro racing bike renovation... As you do. Thanks guys.
