Case is a bit boring looking and if your going to be adding a lot of extra bits such as dvd rom, cd-rw, graphics card, etc. I would be looking for a 350W-400W power supply. The one you are looking at will probably work fine but it doesn't give much room for expansion in the future.

What about this:

MSI KT4V-L SKT A Sound/lan/USB2.0 AGP 8X Motherboard


Coolermaster CP5-6J31C Socket A Upto XP3000 AMD Approved

PC2700 512MB 333MHz DDR DIMM

£177.94 including VAT and 3-day delivery

Case is a bit pricy and looks kinda plain. For that price, you should be looking to have at least a 350W or 400W PSU.

Yeah, that case is very plain. If you click here you can have a look at the funky cases Ebuyer haev to offer. You'll get a much nicer case at a better price. You can get a case with a window in the side and a branded 350Watt PSU for under £40.

300Watt PSU's are fine in most cases, if you intend to be running a basic system (My 300watt psu powers two CD-Rom drives, 2000xp, 256DDR, Hard drive, floppy and video carx.) If you want to put in multiple hard drives and top of the range video and sound cards, or any acse modifications such as LED fans or such, you will need AT least 350watt, althoug 400Watts amy be more prefereable in some cases.

Here, go to ebuyer, and these are the quick find codes you will need for the system you want to build (i used the same specs from the kit from savastore)type these codes into their search engine.

Case - 042057
CPU - 043066
Motherboard - 045414
Memory - 042142
Heatsink - 040758

All of these items come to under £200. If your feeling generous you can send me the difference!! ho ho ho!

Especially Sion.

Thanks for spending the time to give me the codes. I think that I'll buy the items as described by Sion.
