i can help you, if it is AMD.

i start my build tommorrow (well buying parts)

if you want to keep it under 400 it will be hard.

here is a cheap mobo and processor

http://www.dabs.com/products/asus-amd-value-bundle--includes-m2n68-am-plus-motherboard--athlon-x2---2gb--2x1gb--ddr2-memory--70ZK.html

graphics cards and psu and memmory will be expensive but here is a cheap case:

(note: alienware used this last year or the year before)

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Black-%26-Silver-Gaming-ATX-Case---Alienware-Model---BNIB_W0QQitemZ300446548080QQcmdZViewItem?rvr_id=117957897433&rvr_id=117957897433&cguid=0617076212a0a0aad23648a6ffe461f4

its about £26 if you google shop it.

i think you should buy this

http://www.google.co.uk/products/catalog?q=graphics+card&hl=en&cid=13687577378967152551&ei=T1FUTNDTENax-QaQ19SJBA&sa=title&ved=0CCAQ8wIwBTgA#p

would be a good cheap card

PSU: i would look for a nice one:

ram:

total cost:

£59.88: RAM

£124.98:MOBO COMBO

£78:PSU

£120:CARD

£26: CASE

THIS COSTS £409...

THIS WAS A QUICK BROWSE ON GOOGLE SHOPPING MAYBE YOU SHOULD TRY THAT TOO.... :)

i just shown you the wrong link for mobo i ment to of deleted that one and keep the other i do apoligise.

 

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/MOTHERBOARD-BUNDLE-%7c-4GB-DDR3-RAM-%7c-945-QUAD-CORE-500GB_W0QQitemZ190396395030QQcmdZViewItem?rvr_id=118018691681&rvr_id=118018691681&cguid=29ee91c912a0a0aad39285c2fff7da2b

that is the link i deleted by accident.

as you need a HD. also you can change the combo if you scroll down but that will be best for value.

also i would still go with the graphics card i suggested and the relistic price is £500-£550 so you might need to save up. this i might go for myself..

Right, I have now finished my shopping list and am just wondering if all my parts are compatible

heres what I have :

 

CPU, RAM and MOBO

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/MOTHERBOARD-BUNDLE-2GB-DDR3-RAM-ATHLON-635-QUAD-CORE-/190396322081?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_Motherboards_CPUs&hash=item2c54815121

 

GPU

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/222088

 

HDD

http://www.cclonline.com/product-info.asp?product_id=42759&category_id=112&manufacturer_id=0

 

And for PSU and Case is all dependant on wether I win items on ebay (this might get complicated) , idealy I would like the 700w power pack and the thermaltake case from ebay,

if I only win the PSU on ebay then I will buy the NZXT Hades case. If i dont win any then i'll get the " Coolermaster Elite 330 Case with 620W PSU - 2x SATA 12cm Fan"

And the rest is pretty much vice versa, anyway here's the links

Thermaltake case.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220643238429&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

NZXT case.

http://www.cclonline.com/product-info.asp?product_id=51183&category_id=54&manufacturer_id=0&tid=hade-001bk

Cooler Master 700w power supply.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Cooler-Master-Silent-Pro-700w-PSU-power-supply-ATX_W0QQitemZ220643244000QQihZ012QQcategoryZ42019QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Coolermaster Case and PSU

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/206403

 

could you have a look at what is and isn't compatible.

thanks,

i would rather for an extra £5 spend on the gpu i shown you, it's much better then the 5750 the better card!! but the rest is ok..

the case is your choice i do like the hades case looks good (i would rather buy that then the plain jane one you have shown "Coolermaster Elite 330" imo nothing elite about it! lol

also i would get a psu for 750W (i still recomend the XFX GREEN!!!) i love the look of it and it's got good ratings!
