No, we've already gone over this with him, and he refuses for some reason...

esa, that's obviously over his budget. Not everyone can afford a $2,000 PC. It's a lot cheaper to get what he's got. The motherboard you recommended is over 1/4 of his budget right there.

Anyway, looks alright. What's the computer being used for?? (so we can recommend a graphics card)

normally yes they will tell you how to hook everything up. I've only seen one board not tell you this, but that was a pretty old board.

motherboard? good
new processcor? good (the old one had a mis-match in bus speed with the motherboard)
ram? good
case? good
hdd? get this: http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/120302
graphics? get this: http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/118605
that card is defiantly worth the extra 15. It has s-video out, standard video out, and it also has conponent video out, for HDTVs.

and that computer would be able to handle games if you so desire.


other parts you might need:
cd drive
floppy drive
operating system
speakers
monitor
keyboard and mouse
