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?

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

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.

>> looks like i took too long to click on the submit button.
There mustn't have been much in it. ;)

Still, thanks anyway. :)
