I'm from UK and new here, so please go easy on me. I had a Mini-ATX PC which I've been using as a media pc as well as office work. Unfortunately, the kids have damaged it by spilling water, so the motherboard and psu are dead.
Rather than spend money on that, I want to build a new budget mini pc, preferably smaller in size, that can handle at least the same stuff as before:-
Basic Web Games/Browsing
FYI, the old PC specs were:-
AMD Athlon II X2 240e 2.8GHz Socket AM3 2MB Cache Energy Efficient Retail Box Processor
Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H 785G Socket AM3 DVI VGA HDMI Out 8 Channel Audio MATX Motherboard
Kingston 2gb Ddr3 1333mhz Hyperx Memory Cl7(7-7-7-20)
Shiny Piano Black/Red Super Slim Micro ATX Mini Tower Case - With 200W PSU
Samsung SH-S223 22x DVD±RW DL & RAM SATA Optical Drive - OEM Black
I have a budget of £200 but maybe able to stretch to £250...If I could get a MINI-ITX pc, then that would be brilliant.
Thank you very much for your help. First of all let me apologise as I forgot to say that I don't need a hard drive as I've already got a 2.5in 1tb hdd, although I would like to add an ssd drive for quick boot up and for windows.
Before I saw your reply I made my own config on pc part picker and it comes to over £300, whereas yours comes to only £210. I'm willing to stretch to £270, so whatever you can do best for me, please do that
