Hi im looking to buy a custom built computer in a few weeks.
ginger6.com is the cheapest site ive seen so far.
Anyone ordered from them?

Anyway this is what ive come up with so far.

- 00 - CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 (2x 2.66GHz) 1066, 2mb
- 01 - Case - Ccivo 2036a Black/Silver Case
- 01 - Case Fans - Standard case fans
- 01 - Power Supply - 450w Standard
- 02 - Motherboard Asus P5N73-AM -
- 03 - Memory - 2GB Kingston DDR2 800mhz CL6.0
- 04 - Hard Drive 1 - 80gb SATA2 Hard Drive
- 05 - Optical Drive 1 - 16x DVD Drive
- 07 - Graphics - Integrated NVIDIA GeForce 7050 Graphics
- 11 - Operating System - Windows Vista Home Basic (64 bit)
- 15 - Warranty - 12 Months RTB Warranty

Im going to upgrade the graphics (and RAM to 4GB) almost straight away to either a 9800GTX or a HD4850.
With the new video card will i be able to play most games?
and what size PSU do i need?

Thanks,

How much is that system? It does seem a waste of money to buy bits that you're going to upgrade almost straight away to be honest.

Also the HD is very small.

£312
Intel Home Office Custom Built PC Base Unit - Custom Built Gaming PC Base Units
It comes with the graphics and its only an extra £7 for 2GB of RAM so i might aswell.
Yep the HD is small but i plan to buy another one in about 6 months time so i can run windows off of the 80GB and store everything else on the other one.
