Pc Spec

  monkeyhead 14:44 01 Oct 2006

Recently my computer of 5 years packed in. (Processor overheated and caused some damage) All that remains is the case. =(
I've been looking around at a new spec and I've come to the conclusion that this is more or less what I need:- A Reliable and fast processor
Ample memory (1-2gb)
Graphics suitable for the latest games
A motherboard with Usb, firewire, Lan and at least 5.1 sound
Dvd Rw
New p.s.u (I'm guessing im needing about a
Ample space hard drive (120gb I think is more then enough for me)

I'm pretty computer literate but when it comes to choosing and selcting compatible parts thats where I fall down on. I'm aiming to spend at max £400-£500.

I quite like the look of the Amd Athlon 64bit x2 4400+ with double 1mb cache. Could someone please recommend me a motherboard that will meet my requirements and recommend a few reliable brands that should be compatabile for my spec?

Many thanks
Matt Seymour
