Right, I have a budget of £200 (about $330), and I've decided on some components- basically I just wanted to check that there's nothing much better I could get for my money. (I already have a case, monitor, PSU, OS, and optical drives sorted). I'd use my computer mainly for composing music and mixing live stuff, not so much gaming- probably the most complex thing I'd want to run is Project64. I already have a Soundblaster Audigy sound card. CPU- AMD Athlon X2 7850 AM2 2.8GHz 3MB Black Edition Mobo- Asus AM2/AM2+ GeForce 8200 DDR2 ATX Audio Lan (onboard graphics are fine, so long as it can run Project64, which should be no problem) RAM- Corsair Memory 4GBKIT (2X2GB) 800MHZ NON ECC CL5 HDD- Hitachi 3.5" 320GB 16MB SATA HDD That all adds up to £180... so I have room to make changes here and there. My current system is a 256mb pentium 4 so anything would be an improvement... Also, if there's some major mess up in the components I've chosen, please let me know- I'm new to this.
