you mean 60 for a mobo, ram, and cpu? I'm not really sure what the exchange rate is right now, (i think thats around 120-130US$) but that doesn't sound like enough.

Right, so your 60 needs to cover you for your board, RAM and CPU?

Seriously - just stop right there. It's a bit like me saying I've got 500 and want to by a mansion, it's not going to happen!

If you've genuinely only got that much available at the moment, as far as I see it you've got 3 sensible options:
- Save up until you've got about double that amount and then have another look
- Look at second hand stuff on ebay and the like to try and find some bargains
- Scrap the whole idea for now and come back to it when you've got more to spend!

I'm all for building on a budget - my machine does more than I need it to and came in at well under 200. But when you're looking to UPGRADE something for a stupidly little amount of money, sometimes the only sensible answer is - don't.

Add that to the fact that parts are generally more expensive over here anyway - something priced $100 across the pond is likely to be much closer to 100 here than 60.
