New Build PC

Recommended Posts

Well hello to the nerds of TuG. My lad is wanting a comp for xmas looking on spending max ?500, he plays stupid games like cod2, Css and is looking at cod3 when it arrives, i was used to Intell always going for the p4, i then went with AMD as it was better for the gamer, now i here Intel are tops again, so which do i go for and any ideas on what rig i could get, i know its not much as parts for mine cost over ?1500 alone but im sure there is something about, i can then wrap them all up which will look like hes got lots lol then make him build it he is only 15 by the way.




graphics card









thanks in advance.


I have looked at most parts but thought i would just post as i have limited knowledge of comps, enough though.

Do you have any components from old PCs you could use (thinking in paticular of a screen)?


Failing that I would consider something like this:


case: http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/92997

mobo: http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/97308

cpu: http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/88104

graphics: http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/116421

mem: http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?rb=22720160694&action=c2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X3Jldmlld3M=&product_uid=55296

screen: http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/109928


all for 520 quid for a PCI-E rig that you gan upgrade with an AMD X2 later on if you wish and a 19 inch widescreen.


Its just something I knocked up quickly but if you wanna go through any of it JJ give me a shout, meant more to give you ideas than anything but let me know if you need any more help!

hahaha. When I was 12 I built my first pc. I am currently in the process of building another one and I have the money for it, though I have too much work to build and buy now. I reckon If I wait until after my exams I will have saved more and technology will have advanced by then so I will just wait. My laptop is more than enough for css. what do you mean stupid games like css :eek: well. I am addicted. Actually you're rught, it is stupidly addictive...


(plz guys lets not have another css vs GR forum war :P)


Well back on topic, just look online, I recommend a board with socket AM2 because it kicks ass, then get a cheap processor... wait, shit... nm I'm an AMD guy :P soz cant help you much board/CPU wise, I've always been an AMD gamer.. Any other components don't hesitate to ask and I can TRY to help.
