It was actually the Asus P5B I had pencilled in, I just wondered if there was anyting a little cheaper, but I'll stick with it now.

Looks like I can build this guy a decent PC, c/w XP OS, but no monitor, for just under £300. It'll play some games, but it's more fast processing for videos, and internet he'll be doing, so £300 is a pretty good rig and nice price for him.

Put the quickfind code into ebuyer.com if yu are interested to look further..

PSU is really cheap, but I figure it's worth a shot seeing as how this is a budget rig. And I need to check if that RAM is compat with the P5B.

Oh and Rocky, why a 80gig 5400 rpm hdd??? for video editing I'd suggest 2x 500 gig in raid 0/1/1-stripe at least. 5400rpm will slow the whole rig down tremendously, and hdd's are cheap these days....

Rocky, I had a friend who just put together a system with a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L motherboard (about Cdn$100). The board has solid-state capacitors (so they won't burst and leak) and a great value. Apparently it's got a lot of great reviews at overclocker sites, and my friend was able to get his E8400 up to 4GHz

I actually just purchased the RAID version of that board for my new system (GA-P35-DS3R)

Did you end up in your price range once it was all said and done?

I forgot to add VAT in my original pricing, so I had to drop the processor to a low end Dual Core, which brought the price bang in on target - £300.

I have a Q though which I will go post in a new thread - about usb connections.
