Default Need a new PC, for online gaming and work Budget 450 pounds.

Anyone reccomend me anything, i know the budget is pretty low..

I need something that can support games like World of Warcraft and Guild Wars.

The PC will also be used for work but mainly for gaming.

Thanks

Will

well after the amd pricedrops you canget a really cheap am2 system. be sure to get am2 so that you can upgrade to am3 in the future. componenets are really just personal preferance and how much money youre willing to spend but i personlaly really like the foxxcon am2 motherboard its insane.

am2 mobo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130050

MSI is a very relaiable company. But since am2 is new there isnt much out there in terms of really well tested mobos..

Does that price include a monitor speakers, keyboard/mouse, or are you just spending that on the computer itsself?

and what online stores can you buy from in your area?

yeah thats a really good cheaper motherboard...but if its just the computer your buying then you have the money for the more expensive foxxcon mobo..its really good for overclocking

either one you choose you will be happy with it.

OOOOHHHH sorry i thought you were going to build yourself.

just my two cents but irecommend you read up on it, its really not as complicated as you might think. its pretty much just a matter ofplugging things into things lol not to mention it would save youa couple hundred dollars on your system.

i think it would be pretty hard to find a gaming computer prebuilt for 800ish USD, good luck though
