One that comes with motherboard, psu, processor and RAM and very little else. Take a look at for details.

The advantages of a barebones system is that it allows you to pick a motherboard and processor to your specs that are guaranteed compatible then you can chose other pherephials (ie grapics card sound card) that you want kopite

I think that strictly speaking, VoG™ is correct in his description of "barebones".

What might be more useful is what I suggest - partly built systems with motherborad, case, psu, ram and processor. After that you can add as you wish.

I would seriously consider Novatech except for the fact that they have only 300W PSUs and when I asked, said that they wouldn't upgrade.

Jal do have good deals and I am looking at them at the moment.
