    Hi,
    I've decided on getting a AMD 2500+ barton (£75) and want to know what would be the best mobo for this at a reasonable price (ie < £100) but allow for further cpu upgrades in the future.

    Also any one know where I can get a black desktop case of reasonable quality. All the ones I can find are HTPC ones but around £200+. There seems to be a dearth of reasonable priced ones.

    Regards
    John

    Thanks Gary for your reply. I should have said that I was looking for a case that could take a full size ATX board. As to reasonable cost, really less than £125.

    Cheers
    John

    Thanks Gary. There appears to be a PSU problem with this case and to replace it would be awkward as its not a standard size :(

    Might have to consider the more expensive ones, the Accent HT200 looks good

    Tony/Oscar, thanks very much for your input. I particularly like the look of the Antec.

    Regards
