Hi,

Could you please check the following links to ensure compatibility will be okay and I haven't done anything silly. Points will be allocated once system is built.

This combination should work, and the E1200 Celeron is a great value for those looking for Core2 Duo performance on a budget. It would have been nice if the motherboard supported 800 FSB RAM, as I would have used that instead of 533 to make full use of the E1200's 800 FSB, but it's not a deal breaker.  Also, the sweet spot for hard drives is below $0.20/GB, so perhaps a larger hard drive would give more capacity with better value.

Would that make a noticeable difference?

The RAM bus speed would not increase overall speed by a huge factor - maybe 10-20%.  I would consider it if the cost of doing so was incrementally small.

Ok, thanks. I know I said points would be assigned after build, but considering your rank would it be okay if I accepted your comment but asked you to stay subscribed to this question in case of difficulties/further questions?

Sure, that's not a problem - I typically stay subscribed to all my questions, even after they are accepted, in case there is a need for followup.

They will all work fine

But here are a few recommendations;

For £36.17 you can get a faster Celeron CPU :

I would prefer for £46.62 the Pentium which is faster and has 1mb cache:

For £27.97 you can get double the Hard Drive space :

Of coarse it depends on how much you want to spend.

Hope this helps.

Hiya f-king,
 
 Thanks for the recommendations, much appreciated - although this system must be a very low cost PC.

There mustn't have been much in it. ;)

Still, thanks anyway. :)
