Hi all,

I'm planning on building a new computer but don't wanna spend alot of money on it (less than £400 preferably). Here's what I'm planning on getting:

Case - Coolermaster Elite 330
Mobo - Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3L
CPU - Q8200
RAM - Corsair 4GB (or possibly OCZ2G8004GK - not sure, price difference atm is quite good for me :P)
GFX - XFX 9500GT 1GB

Total:- £373.46

As for optical and hard drives I'm just going to use the ones I got atm because they're both quite new. Good for the price imo, what do you guys think?

I went with what you said Scooter and i'm so glad I did because my nice new Asus mobo is awesome :P

So yeah, I've built it up and all the nice flashy blue lights have are there and I've got XP installed and all that crap lol. I'll post some pics of it later (Am I said? Yeah...do I care? Nae chance :P)

Anyway yeah if anyone's interested, here's what I went with in the end:-

Thread kinda died but oh well:

I would recommend getting a Q6600 instead of an Q8200.

And Scooter, Gigabyte beats the asus P5Q series with ease.
