Default Building a new PC

Hi all, just looking for some help/advice really.

Im wanting to build a new PC, but spend no more than 300 building it, and wanting some help/links to some products.

I have a case i can use, i have 4gig DDR2 ram, CD/DVD-RAm RW drive, GFX card is a PCI-E nvidia 8500GT (Not very good, but will be OK for now untill i can afford better), 300gig HD.

Think I need everything else new, as my mobo and processor atm is AMD and I'm wanting pentium.

Any help appriciated

I'd go with the first build, get a HD 4650 rather than the 9400GT, it's a much better card.

And get a 780G board if you can afford it, if not, it doesn't really matter.

Do you already have a PSU?

Ignore him, he is taking the piss.

You have 300 to spend on a pentium? im guessing you mean intel because pentiums are stone age, if so I suggest you get:

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 2 x 3.00Ghz (136.85)
http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/s....html?IL-E8400

Gigabyte GA-EP43-DS3L, iP43 Express, S 775 (69.00)
http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/s...tml?GIG-P43S3L

Now you need to tell us how much your PSU outputs, so we can determine whether your going to need a more powerful one.
