Where can I get a cheap CPU/Mobo bundle?

  May the Schwarz be with you... 17:52 12 Jul 2003

Hi, I posted this before click here but I still haven't yet found a good bundle and I ticked it because I was nearly about to buy this mobo with onboard 1Ghz CPU from ebuyer for £40 but then I was told by my brother that he wanted an upgradable set.

I'm looking for a mobo which has an AGP slot, probably Socket A and can have either SDRAM slots, DDR slots or even both. I am also looking for a Socket A CPU and it doesn't matter if it's a Duron because although my brother will play the occasional game, he isn't particularly a speed freak and will be surfing the net most of the time. I'm looking at under £60 if possible because I can just get a Socket A mobo and AMD Thunderbird 1.1Ghz for under £60.

Btw, is the Thunderbird 1.1Ghz 200Mhz FSB faster than a Duron 1.3Ghz 200Mhz FSB? I currently have this Duron and might give this to my brother and then have the Thunderbird myself since it only costs about £20.

Well, the mobo looks ok and it's for my brother anyways but the Thunderbird is cheaper though and I already have a Duron 1.3Ghz and it would feel wierd to have 2 identical CPUs in the house though. Is the Thunderbird 1.1Ghz faster than the Duron 1.3Ghz?

They seem more expensive then buying the components separately off ebuyer though.

Hi, try click here. They are the best priced place I have found. cheers, John.

They cost about the same as ebuyer though. And I can't seem to get the icons where I click on to work. I think it's a Java problem because I had that last time.
