My first build :)
Hi there, I want to build myself a new gaming PC and my old P4 computer can hardly run anything anymore even with hyper-threading on...so could you please help me, I want to build the cheapest gaming rig possible..I dont have a big budget at all (im only 13 ).
hey if you could follow the new build thread advice that would be great. it is a sticky on this new system build forum. thanks
heres the link: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice
sorry i didnt realise..
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This month, or as soon as i have decided. BUDGET RANGE: £450
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: gaming, internet, music, films videos etc.
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Moniter, mouse, keyboard and speakers
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: dont really have a preference but everyone seems to like newegg.com and other well known sites.
PARTS PREFERENCES: AMD since its processors are usually cheaper but a equivalent Interl for the same price would be great,
OVERCLOCKING: No.. Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: no..
MONITOR RESOLUTION: i already have a moniter...good resolution...sorry i dont know its highese though..
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would like this build to last me quite a while...and to be upgradeable in the future. not too bothered what at looks like as my budget wont allow me to have a great looking case..its what inside that counts
Thanks in advance.
Have you checked out the System Builds on this site ?

That all came in at about £410 pounds on Ebuyer and should be more than adequate for your gaming needs.
