I am interested in building my first PC and am looking at a budget of only €300 or about $380 without shipping€300 is the budget as my wife wants to buy me a Compaq from our local supermarket and the specs of that dont even come close to this build.. I dont need a hard drive as I have a couple of 1TB drives from a Packard Bell that I am getting rid of.
I have looked around in Spain where I live and the cheapest that I can get for what I think is a reasonable setup is this delivered from Germany of all places

I dont need a new monitor as I have a 21in Packard Bell that I can use for the time being.
I have included a motherboard with integrated graphics as I dont play too many games on my PC but if someone has a better option for me I would be willing to listen.
