I want to build my own.....

  [DELETED] 17:57 26 Dec 2003

I will soon be moving into my own flat, minus my much loved pc.....so, being a short of cash, and wanting to keep in touch with my fiends worldwide, I wondered what it might cost to build a basic machine , capable of running Windows98, plus a modem and sound card......any ideas ?

Depends on how up to date you want to be
If you are happy to be one step behind current top of the range stuff, then, probably about £350 or so if you already have a monitor and an operating system

If you are not looking for cutting edge technology and, would be prepared to accept used items, e-bay always has a multitude of bargains available.
