It is a budget build, £150 to spend and its driving me crazy trying to find the right parts, I don't mind that it cannot be upgraded in the future because I don't plan on doing so. I'm gunna keep it simple by just showing the parts I have queries about. Here it is:
Motherboard: Gigabyte 8I865GME-775 - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/113839
Processor: Intel Pentium D 915 - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/114196
Memory: 1.5GB DDR Ram (not DDR2 - some people said if you have dual core you need DDR2) - already own

Also here is some more info on the mobo: http://www.gigabyte.co.nz/Support/Motherboard/CPUSupport_Model.aspx?ProductID=2223 It says that if I want the pentium D 915 I need bios version F5, what if the motherboard comes with an older version, will I be able to upgrade it without the processor in? Also how well would this work with vista ultimate and would I be better of with a 3.2ghz Pentium 4 HT? Thanks for any replies.
