A while back, I had intended to build a PC. However because of a few reasons, I never got around to it. After christmas, I intend to actually build a new one this time, and I'm looking for advice.
I'm getting an old PC (Pentium II, PCI graphics card etc. etc.) to use as a base, so I have to buy even less this time (though I'll still be throwing out most of the old parts). However, my budget is lower again (€200-€300, depending on how much I get at christmas).
Things I don't need to buy:
- Monitor (must have VGA or HDMI outputs though as I'm using my HDTV as a monitor - apparently some cheaper new graphics cards only have DVI)
- Speakers, Keyboard or mouse
- PSU (depending on graphics card, it's only 330W)
At that budget, I'm probably looking at integrated sound and graphics card, but I need to be able to upgrade the graphics card at a later time.
Anyone care to give me probable components/specs I'm looking at for that budget? (Newegg is US only, so don't post that).
This is Ireland, so while the actual exchange rate might be $1 to €0.67, the effective one once you count in delivery and/or markup by shops is $1 to €1 (it sucks, I know).
