MoBo + Graphics Help Please

  ilepak 18:03 19 Oct 2004

I'm looking to build a computer in the next few weeks and would like some advice re. components.

I'm thinking of an AMD 64 3000+ chip and a suggestion for a socket 754 mobo. I am ok about onboard sound and graphics. Will have 512 or 1024 mb RAM.

I am a general computer user - play the odd game, surf, run MS office (for my business), watch DVD + divx, listen to music - nothing to the extreme.

I am looking for suggestions for a motherboard (up to about £90) and a graphics card (£50 to £90) as long as there is appreciable difference over integrated graphics on any potential mobo.

Any suggestions gladly received

cant be to precise on mobo but any good quality make should do msi asus etc but there is no substitute for good graphics card and sound card sound blaster live minimum nvdia or radeon graphics cards are both good but personal preference

i bought a msi a year ago,no problems and good software package,you could get better results with spending more of your money on a graphics can get a 9800 pro for £130 or a 6800 from £150 but you want at least a fx5900\5950 for about £100
