Hello everyone can you tell me the best cheapest am2 board to buy in the uk i want to upgrade but im only allowed Â£60 for motherboard which has to include ram and cpu and cooler and fan please HELP maplins is too dear
Right, so your Â£60 needs to cover you for your board, RAM and CPU?
Seriously - just stop right there. It's a bit like me saying I've got Â£500 and want to by a mansion, it's not going to happen!
If you've genuinely only got that much available at the moment, as far as I see it you've got 3 sensible options:
- Save up until you've got about double that amount and then have another look
- Look at second hand stuff on ebay and the like to try and find some bargains
- Scrap the whole idea for now and come back to it when you've got more to spend!
I'm all for building on a budget - my machine does more than I need it to and came in at well under Â£200. But when you're looking to UPGRADE something for a stupidly little amount of money, sometimes the only sensible answer is - don't.
