    Budget is £350 or so to get started, we just want to build the base for now : ]

    Motherboard: AMD preferred but not essential
    CPU : At the least, a dual core.
    PSU: Enough to run a basic gaming system
    Rams: 4gb total

    I've got a full system if you're interested?

    Coolermaster Elite 330 Case (choice of side window or not)
    Core 2 Duo E6420 overclocked to 3.2GHz
    Gigabyte P35-DS3L Motherboard
    4GB DDR2 800Mhz RAM
    8800GT Graphics Card with Vortexx Neo Cooler
    480W PSU
    500GB HDD (1TB for £30 more)
    Integrated 7.1 Sound Card
    DVD RW Drive (20 or 22x)

    Guessing you want to build it yourself tho? I'd be looking for £290 delivered.

    Can't fault the deal above... however I've just had a quick look on Ebuyer and I find the 4 components your wanting ;)

    EDIT, I just realised I chose DDR3 instead of DDR2 what that board support's but anyway's it still show's you'll get a nice build for around £300

    Nick you sexy thing that would be perfect for his needs!

    If I can't find better individual parts we'll be on that like flies to jam.

    Does that mobo support quad cores by the by? ( to lazy to check :p he he)

    Send that heatsink with that if I do.

    Will need to talk to my friend, he needs to sell some bits and bobs before he has the money so we'll have some time yet.

    Thanks for the help so far guys. :toast:

    Yeah the mobo supports quad cores. I've got it up for sale on the adtrader/gumtree in the meantime but if it's still available when you have the money it'll be yours hehe (assum ing you can't find better parts).
