    What parts are you looking for, do you already have a case it can go into or DVD drives? also do you need a monitor?

    sorry, i seen a case on ebay with a 480 watt psu for £15 so i mite get that. and if you can recomend a cheap lcd thated be great, also she will be mostly just surfing the net nothing to difficult, so really i need help with a cheap mb ,cpu ,cddrive,hdd and ram.

    also would a 3600+ sempron completly suck ballsm as its single core

    If it is just for the Internet and she doesn't care that it will take a bit longer to load up when she first sticks it on, then a single core is fine.
