You can get a Intel Pentium 4 2.0 GHz processor with the right cooling fan, motherboard and 256 MB ram for £230.00! This is a motherboard kit.

You will be redircted to SavaStore

Click on 'motherborads' in the grey boxes, then let the page load and click on 'motherboard kits'.

If you want to you can go for an AMD Athlon kit, that reaches your budget. These kits are great, they offer maximum compatibility, no conflics, no problems.

You can scroll to the end of the website and go for a 2.4Ghz kit which is faster for £278.99 or stretch youself and go for an even faster 2.53GHz kit for £324.00. These prices are still extremely cheap.

Athlon Thoroughbred 2200+ and Asus A7V8X, then you can get youself some nice PC3200 (400MHz) memory to really speed things along...

£207.98 (plus p+p) and some left over for the memory.... click here

Or the new nforce board, A7N8X... Overclockers just an example. Personally, I'd go for the cooler running thoroughbred core and not pay out for limited gains of highest clock speeds and 333MHz FSB. It all depends on what usage you have envisaged for your system.
