Hey, my brother's pc had his gpu blow up due to it's fan dying without him noticing a while back and now his RAM seems to be corrupt as well (tbh it always had issues with the RAM), so I figured we'd just get him a new mobo/cpu too since his old rig was on ddr2 and it looks like they're all expensive as hell now.

Prob is he hasn't got much money at all, I can help chip in but only so much, so we're looking to spend around 200+- on some hardware.

Main purpose would be for him to run wow, since everything else he plays is a lot lower power than that (DF, terraria etc).

So in short, I need a spec with a CPU, MOBO, RAM and a GPU for around £200 since I've got a OCZ psu and a nice hdd+dvd drive for him already.

It would be nice to fit in a case too since his current one is a ****** old packard bell case with no air in/outlets, but that's optional.

Thanks!

I'm not sure about the RAM/GPU/CPU/MoBo but have you considered drilling holes in the case where you can?

I don't have a the gear for it and the side is metal, would prolly cost more for me to get the drill and screw it up than it would to just get a cheapo case.
