    Hi guys,

    My son is a bit of a Minecraft geek and would like to explore the java version and look to setup a minecraft server. He's only 8 so doesn't have a great deal of cash but does have a little bit birthday money left over.
    I already have a tower case, psu and SSD drive for the build, just looking for something cheap m-atx/itx which will run minecraft. Preferably an FM2 board/cpu or something similar.

    He's also interested in a Raspberry Pi as he's just started using these at school to code.


    As for the Pi, anything really, its just for coding so doesn't need to be the latest model.

    Thanks a lot guys.

    That’s what I thought. Either a misprice or typo. Let’s see what turns up in the post. As long as it’s a 2b or better, I’ll be happy.

    That’s very kind! Can I at least pay for postage costs please?
    My son is now happy after I had to tell him about the earlier cancelled sale.

    Do you know the model?

    I do have a 4GB DDR3 Stick, but if you still need a bundle, could do a deal

    Hi. I’d just need some memory. I have an AM1 cpu and a sempron cpu (which I’ll upgrade at some point) but it’s just needing extra memory.

    How much for the 4gb?

    Thanks for the offer but I can get one new for £28 on amazon. I’ll pass and pick up a cheaper one at auction. Cheers.

    Oh mate that would be awesome. The other pi he was sent arrived yesterday and it was the A version. I’m really grateful for the sender giving this to my son but I’ve struggled with the lack of lan port.

    I’ll ensure I pass on the A model to another person in need when the B model arrived. I’ll PM you now.

    Thanks again!

    Yes, it arrived through the week, thank you. I’ve just got back from working away so we haven’t had time to get it going but he’s off school all of next week so we’ll set some time free to get started. Again, thanks very much.
