    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
