As per title - mate wants a new system building and I'm out of touch with stuff at the moment.

  • Must have a decent sound card
  • Onboard GFX will be fine.
  • 19 or 20" Monitor
  • Vista

Apart from that anything goes :)

Liking the look of this one :)

As I said - I'm out of touch with stuff at the CPUs and MOBO's at the moment - other stuff I can work around the budget - Just need pointing in the right direction for these two parts.

Case etc I'll get him to choose.

GFX card is NOT needed - so there is no point speccing a system with a £200 GFX card - its plain overkill guys! Onboard will more than do the job here.

Vista Basic also seems pointless

I would say an X1950 Pro, but if he does not game that may be overkill.

A 7600GS would be alright, or even a 7300.

Id get something like a 7600 GS to have something in there atleast.

will bare that in mind. I'll ask him if he can increase the budget a bit.
