    OK , as christmas has took one hell of a chunk of my money , ive decided not to go out and buy a new computer just yet. But then i see , in maplin a bare bones pc, for 109 pounds. for this price you get a 2.4 celeron processor and the mother board . You have to add the cd/dvd drive, your hard drive and some memory and i dare say graphics card, but i think its a decent deal , anyone think im wrong
    :eek:

    Seems like a fair price for barebone, but what we need to know is what you want this system to do ? If it is a run of the mill working PC then fine, but if you are after high-end performance, then this isn't your best option.

    well id like something to play games on so i know id need a decent graphics card too , im not that bothered about plying games online, im pretty sure with some decent memory (512) and a decent graphics card that would be ample to play most games n and do my run of the mill stuff , tho obviously not at the same time

    Go with at least 1MB of ram the more the better. But a word of warning check to see how much RAM can be added to the MOBO. Is this the one if so I see it comes with on board graphics but remember it uses RAM from the RAM on the board.

    :p

    For low end games, this barebones could do. Don't expect to play Fear, Elder Scrolls Oblivion or anything like that. CM5, maybe :)

    It just depends on the type of games you want to play, IMO.
