Help! I am running a old clockwork pc, on Windows 98. I am looking for a base unit only, as I have a monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers ,ect. I want a unit just to play pc,games on, and for surfing the Internet on, nothing else. Do you think I can get this for no more then 500 pounds? Do you perhaps know a place where I can buy the above from? Many thanks if you can help.
get a asus a7n8xe-deluxe motherboard (£70), athlon 2600 xp CPU(£70) 512 ddr pc3200 RAM (£60) radeon 9600 xt 256 graphics card(120). Overclock the processor by increasing the FSB to 400 instead of the default 333, this will give you the performance of a processor costing £180. To do this buy a good fan (cooler master aero 7+) which is another £20. overclocking this chip is easily done and safe but you do need to have a idea of what you are doing.
