Ok thanks strollin. And celegorm, my son is taking it from here.
Hi guys, thanks for the help: i have a budget of £500 and i live in england, GB. Already have windows os disk. But £500 has to do the 'tower' and monitor. Im thinking about £100 for the monitor.
From here I have found this 'i3' bundle on amazon.... here
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2-B3
CPU: Intel i3 2100 CPU 3.1GHz
RAM: Corsair 8GB DDR3 1333MHz
HDD: 1TB SATA Hard Drive
GPU: Sapphire HD 5450 1GB -only about £30- wouldnt want to spend anymore than £50 on GPU-
Fan: i think the 'bundle' comes with CPU fan- maybe just a small system fan? (Mobo can take 2 fans inc CPU fan.)
Disk Drive: ASUS 24X DVD Burner
And PSU: - I have no idea what power i need!!! :S perhaps here
(CIT 450W Gold 12Cm Silent Atx Power Supply)
In terms of what i want to do- general home use (which i think that could handle) and basic gaming.
I hope that CPU, Ram, GPU, Mobo combination won't bottleneck too. what do you guys think?
