    hi, i have recently had a few problems with my mobo and processor on my old system and i have decided to make a new one from what i have. My old pc is an acer aspire t180-gb7z here: http://www.superwarehouse.com/Acer_Aspire_T180-US340B_Desktop/AST180-US340B/ps/1495442

    i have added 2 gb of ram to that and i also have a new ati radeon 4650 ready to install, i have plenty of sata cables and suchlike to use but i wanted to know how good the combo i have chosen to build upon is and get ome ffedback, thanks,


    for the motherboard i found this : http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001RQV4II/ref=s9_sima_gw_s3_p23_i3?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-1&pf_rd_r=1PX4ZNSDSV4F79V2FCGP&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=467198433&pf_rd_i=468294

    and the processor for it is : http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/AMD+Athlon+II+X2+Dual+Core+250+3.00GHz+%28Socket+AM3%29+-+Retail+?productId=37441


    and the case : http://www.amazon.co.uk/BLACK-1003-Entry-Solution-COMPUTER/dp/B001PJOMEA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1262523464&sr=8-1

    im am pretty sure these 3 will connect up together fine, but i am not sure about the power supply from the old pc, any ideas?? thanks x x x

    I would recommend not using the PSU from the old PC, since it's only 250W and if you have used it for more than a year, the output is now considerably lower than that due to component aging.

    I recommend these parts for you, based on an estimate of your budget:
    That should probably be within your budget, and compatibility should not be an issue.
