    OK, nice and simple this one. Landlady needs a new PC and I said I would do it for her if she knocks £20 off next weeks rent :)

    Requirements -

    - Strict £150 Budget
    - Build is for web surfing/extremely basic gaming (think Facebook games)
    - No Hard drives, monitor, mouse, keyboard or OS needed in the build (already have these)
    - UK only sites that I use are Ebuyer.com and Amazon.co.uk
    - Ideally the best parts you can get for the limited budget

    Looking forward to seeing what you guys can come up with, hopefully have a few different ones that I can choose from.

    Cheers :)

    amd c60m1-i, stick of ddr3 ram, (c60m1-i is available on mini-itx.com a uk web site)

    build a computer for my brother with that MB, (c60m1-i) for christmas with an ssd because I was low on funds and had the components available, and a win8 license around. i used a pico-psu power suppy because I wanted silence...
    the MB with a SSD,and hdd "at sleep" will idle at about 11-15 watts, under win8. or about 26 watts using a SSD,HDD, and linux.

    if you don't mind i bit of noise I used the "IN WIN BL631T" has a 300 watt bronze psu...

    You could buy a decent used laptop with windows 7 for that kind of cash.

    MB+CPU+RAM:

    Option 1: click - has only 4gb ram - 97.95

    Option 2: click - has 8gb ram would go with that - 104.95

    Both motherboards have PS2 ports for keyboard+mouse so old ones would works as well. Drawback can be they only have D-SUB for video, but ... most times that is not a problem ;).

    Case: Zalman T1 Mini Case - seems lovely for your needs - 18.71

    PSU: CiT 450W - don't know how good is that brand but the system has really small power requirements so this should suffice. - 23.20

    All link are from amazon.co.uk. Hope this helps a bit. :)
