Many years ago I used to spend many an hour within this forum speccing up PC's and know all there was to know about CPU's, Motherboards etc. Now I have no idea what goes with what, who makes the best Ram for which motherboard.
A friends asked me to build him a PC, the build I have no problem with, Im an IT field engineer. The speccing up of the kit itself is a problem, so hopefully you guys could give me a few pointers.
Budget is ?320
Core 2 Duo CPU
200GB or bigger HDD
then the usual ; Case, DVDRW, Graphics, Motherboard.
This unit will NOT be overclocked, needs to be 100% stable.
Core2duo is solid
Gigbabyte or Intel board.
Corsair ram is decent
Western Digital drive over the Hitachi
Get any solidly built case BUT you need to get a decent power supply, Antec or thermaltake should do the trick.
Graphics card - Depends on what the pc will be used for, if he's not playing games a low end Nvidea card should do the trick
