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
2GB Ram
200GB or bigger HDD
then the usual ; Case, DVDRW, Graphics, Motherboard.

This unit will NOT be overclocked, needs to be 100% stable.

My effort:

Intel Core 2 Duo E2160 "LGA775 Conroe" 1.80GHz ?63.44
Intel DP965LT 965 ?70.50
Corsair 2GB DDR2 Value Select PC5300C5 ?51.69
Hitachi Deskstar T7K500 NCQ 250GB ?38.76
Graphics card PCIe ?40
Case ?45

not sure if you still need some advise on this?

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
