Surprise lottery win

  the old man 18:23 25 Jan 2007

Evening everyone,
Just found out I won £1500 on lottery last night. This now means that I have a very unexpected windfall for a new computer, well at least a base unit. I have a 19" monitor, speakers, keyboard, mouse, 160gig and 80gig HDD's, dvdrw, dvd player and so won't need any of these new. Where and what can I get for £700 which will use these things I already have. Any recommendations greatfully accepted. Don't want to be building anything myself but I can install dvdrw and hdd etc. if you know what I mean.

Could I have some views on this system. I could sell off the bits and pieces I have in my system and use my monitor.

I'm with TB and ed-0 go for a barebones then just add your bits to it but remember to add an OS if the one on you HDD is an OEM copy if a boxed retail dont worry but will have to clean install or will get MoBo driver conflicts.
