New PC building time!

Postby Gibby » Thu Sep 20, 2012 4:28 pm

Hello Preys Worldians.

Well, it's that time of decade. I am going to build a new PC. However, I am going to need the help of you lovely folks because it's a minefield out there! I guess I have a budget of about £600 (won't actually be buying for a few months but I'd like to get some ideas) but that'll have to include a new case, Windows 7 and a hard drive.

Help me pretty please. Recommendations?

That will probably get you a reasonable idea to start with, then tweaking can occur!
IMO :P :wink: :P :wink: :P :wink:
