Default Can anyone reccomend a build please?

Hi everyone,
I was wondering what is the best computer I could build for 200-250. The main use would be simulators/gmod and internet. I already own a DVD burner and sound card.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

How could i forget, sorry.

Unfortunately not they are all at extremely high prices at the moment, i use a SSD it was 90 for 90GB, but dramatically increased system speed.

My HDD have always been seagate, there the cheapest, and i think there amazing, not the best quality, you will get some errors, and fragmentation, but money saving is everything xD Western Digital are also fairly cheap and good quality. For Your Budget these are your best options.

If you Can afford a SSD - i strongly advise it, running simulators access time for data is so much faster than HDD therefore less lag

Best Value On Ebuyer ATM :

Yes, i only ever buy my components from ebuyer, apart from there rip-off next day delivery fee or free in 5 days if you spend 50, this is the cheapest place in the UK to buy Computer components (unless you catch a good deal somewhere).

You have no worries with ebuyer, and i am genuinely surprised you haven't bought from them before :/

Good Luck on the build, did you want me to create an Intel, or you ok with AMD?
