Hey there, I've specced a pc for a friend but not too sure on the CPU & Motherboard combination. Would you guys be able to tell me if this would all work fine or not. If you have other suggestions the pc needs to cost £600-£610 max!

The pc will be used for some gaming, web browsing, movies & music.

Cheers!

It'll work yeah, but tbh I wouldnt be building a socket 775 system from new now, its outdated tech, youd be better looking at AM3 route, have a read of this thread for info if you like

Basically to stay in budget get these mobo/cpu

AMD Phenom II X3 Tri Core 720 Black Edition 2.80GHz (Socket AM3) - Retail £97.99 (£85.21)
Asus M4A79XTD Evo (Socket AM3) PCI-Express DDR3 Motherboard £83.00 (£72.17)
Total : £180.99

Thanks for the reply.

I was a bit concerned also about a 775 system, I just wasn't sure how the Phenoms match up to Intels Quad range. I'll see how he feels about the Tri core option.
