Hey guys, was just browsing ebay looking at pc components and saw how cheap some are getting, if i am not mistaken it is possible to make a decent, overclocked gaming system for around £150-300

Here is one of my possible setups

AMD Sempron 140 2.70GHz
Asus M4N68T-M LE NForce 630a
2-4GB DDR3 PC3-10666 1333MHz
WD 500GB Sata
Some type of akasa 600watt ish PSU
Decent £30 gaming case from ebay
Any ideas on budget graphics cards? was thinking GTX 260 or maybe less
oh and dvd drives are dirt cheap now as i believe

This is just a random idea, cause i know a few people looking to buy gaming pc's, was wondering if it would be worth while building them to sell on for a small profit? even if i bought parts in bulk or job lots etc

Any thoughts, ideas, comments or opinions, post please, constructive only please, no flaming :)

My personal opinion .... if the PC costs that little, it won't be up to much in the way of gaming. That isn't to say you can't get fairly reasonable machines for that sort of price though, but it all depends on what you want to use it for.

Don't forget the OS aswell, Windows 7 is going to cost another £70+ easy for each machine aswell.

Well tanis i can give options for os, and a decent quality.dual core with a decent overclock will run most games as long as a decent gfx card is there
And prune, i can sort something out for those 3 things, but i am selling to friends so they most likely wont ask for those things, but im not gonna rip anyone off anyway, especially my friends :p so if they had problems i would sort them

:) Depends what you class as a decent graphics card I suppose, that will eat a chunk of your budget and there is no point putting a decent graphics card in if you don't have the other infrastructure components to support it. There are, as always where PCs are concerned, alot of variables included what the end user wants to use the machine for.

As I said that before, this is my opinion :D and I, as a gamers myself, wouldn't buy a machine for that cost and expect to be able to play anything much on it.

I take it you are only looking at the PC box, no peripherals?
