Hi there,

I need to build a computer for basic office needs and was hoping to build a rig with an Intel i3 2120 for under £400 including Win 7 HP 64bit. I already have a monitor, mouse and keyboard.

Minimum requirements need to be as follows..

CPU: i3 2120
Hardrive: 250Gb
RAM: 4Gb

My budget is £400 inc VAT and I would like to buy all parts from preferably :) 

Thanks very much :)
