  1. Looks good as a basic box.

    I'd suggest this motherboard, with a faster chipset:

    And a 6670 video card

  2. Motherboard is Micro-ATX so;

    Cheaper case:

    ^ Case can still use standard ATX PSU

    Cheaper HDD:

    Dual Channel RAM:

  3. I'd recommend this board instead: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/253356
    Also a better PSU: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/240998

    Drop the case down to something cheaper if you have too, but a good PSU runs coolers generally and should save some on the power bill.
  4. Cheers guys, get a better setup for £8 less with these changes, anyone else have any changes or opinions on the setup generally?
  5. Power bill isn't generally a issue due to the computer not running that often (maybe 2 hours a night)
    Why would you choose that board over others? Faster chipset?

    AMD chipsets generally "behave" better than Nvidia chipsets IMO, plus you get a better IGP.
    Get the Biostar though, same board for less. Didn't see it just then. :pt1cable:
