Hi, i've come to the decision to replace my terrible computer.

I have a budget of around £300.

I want the best i can get for that money.

I will be using it for gaming purposes such as AION and World of Warcraft.

I know my budget isn't to high but that's all i can afford currently.

I'm asking you to build me a computer for around that money!

I'm a UK resident if that affects anything.

As a start i've found
Not sure if that's any good?

Thanks all,i welcome your input.

I don't require a mouse, monitor or keyboard.
I currently am running 1280x960.
I don't mind websites as long as they can ship to the UK, so preferably UK based websites since shipment will be cheaper.

Do you need an OS? That alone costs almost £90 so it'll be very hard to get a decent gaming rig if you dont have one already.

i don't need an OS as stated above.

Build's question was valid. You never mentioned that you didn't need an OS.

Yes, the build above is better than that Cyberpower sytem. Notice the description on the PSU "STANDARD CASE POWER SUPPLY ***No OverClocking Possible***". That's NEVER a good sign. You would be much better off building your own so you can ensure all the parts are high-quality components. You never want to scrimp on the PSU.

ok thanks obsidian for your help.

I will wait for other peoples replies before i make my order.

Also i was looking to probably upgrade to 4GB RAM Instead of the 2 GB you have suggested.

yeh should be able to, which is better out of those? in your opinion
September 15, 2009 7:40:45 PM

ok thanks

its not too bad but i dont trust any nvidia chipsets too many have died on me ,the graphics card might be restricted by a normal pci x16 slot,the newer amd cpu's are faster then previous generations at the same clock speed but not by much. i believe the case and power supply is the exact one used in the cyberpower system
