May depend on what you're going to use it for, the size of your case, how much you'll be upgrading in the future, etc. Please ask if you're not sure about these things.

Also checkout the bundles at Novatech click here - you're sure to find something better for the same money. Refine your results by using the options in the left column. G

Maplins can some times be over priced.
Novatech do offer some great deals though & their price is competitve.

your first link in the posting above is by far the better of the three.

I Agree the Overclocker's 6000 is a good price. However, Novatech has excellent customer service. Don't know about Overcloker's service as I have never used them.

Though the OC deals look good, couple of things to consider:

1. They're not pre-assembled or tested - you have to DIY
2. They're not very good with returns if something's not working

If you're OK with DIY, why don't you get similar parts off eBuyer for cheaper - e.g.:

- AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ = £65
- Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 Socket AM2 click here = £48
- OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 800Mhz/PC2-6400 = £54

TOTAL = £167 - remember this comes with 4Gb PC2-6400 quality RAM.

Or, select 2Gb click here, if you feel 4Gb may be overkill, saving ~£30 in the process.

OK, the motherboard I suggested isn't as good as the OC one, but do you really need an expensive motherboard? G

as Crossbow7 points out in his thread, the Overclocker bundles only come with a one-year warranty, whereas the one I pointed you to, has a three year one.
