    Hi all,

    After getting good advice for building an i5 rig for someone the other week, I'm now back, but this time need advice on a tight budget rig.

    Budget is about £150. It's only for typing and internet browsing, so doesn't need to be quick, just reliable.

    I'm really struggling on this one. I thought AMD was probably the better bet for a cheap system, but am still not having much luck.

    Onboard graphics are fine, no games on this one!

    Will be running Windows XP Home Edition, 32bit, which the guy already has.

    UK only, Ebuyer for preference.

    Here's what I've got so far, but it's too much at the moment! Really tight budget!

    Would like to hit £140 so I can still get next day postage within the budget if possible.

    Thanks all!
