Only thing i can really advise on is your PSU, its too small by todays standards and i would consider spending more money on something that will stand the test of time...

Depending on what you want the system for, a better graphics card may be wanted. 8800gt 256mb. Can be had for around £130.

hehe! That card is only JUST over half is budget. lol.


Yeah its a good system but don't expect too much though, as your only spending £250. Definately go for a bigger and better PSU. Perhaps go for a dual core Intel cpu but the AMD is good enough.
