Also remember that the cheap "600w" psu's arn't actually anywhere near 600w, so you're much better off buying something like a 400w Antec which is likely to be similar in price.

ok thanks

and what are your thoughts on sempron vs athlon 64

theres 20 quid in it.

i know it seems like nothing, but im trying to keep the cost down, but if there is a tangible difference, then yes, its only 20 quid!

if its just going to be an internet machine, then a sempron will be perfectly fine. Anything more than just internet access (editing photo's, playing any games, ripping dvd's.. etc) pay the extra for a 64.

It`s only a personal thing, but I like to get Athlons as long as they`re available.

thanks guys

i would never get sempron for myself, but this girl literally just wants to use internet, maybe watch a couple of dvds, and do word processing.

im just tryign to save her a bit of money.

I think an A64 is well worth the extra little bit of cash...but if she's really on a budget a Sempron will do fine

she wont even feel the extra cache. Trust me , I know , ive made enough sempron and athlon machines. Instead spend that extra cash on a good psu and try the biostar 6100 Tforce board. Seems to run great , get a cheaper proc and oc it to a faster speed. Save money that way. ;)

I was going to suggest that, but IIRC, we had someone else asking about mATX boards and we established that the Tforce isn't really readily available over in the UK/Europe. Maybe not though

my 2p's worth, I agree, PC might malfunction after 6 months if its a £10 PSU - they never last.
Sempron/athlon; maybe £25 on extra stick of ram instead of slighty better CPU might be better if shes only using for email office etc.
