    Bundle

    Anyone recommend motherboard bundle (cpu\ram\m'board)?

    Ideally 100... more ram = better. Also need a PSU as well...

    For my self.

    PS: I hate onboard graphics, but I think I'm stuck for the price, full atx, and pci-express have a ati hd something or other.

    Asus motherboards are pretty good in my experience for desktops 32+

    As for CPUs, to match your 100 budget, a Celeron Dual Core E1200 are actually very fast bearing in mind the price (about 38)

    2GB 800/667 DDR Memory is about 16 - 20

    Power Supplies 350-400w 12-14+

    As for graphics cards, this is where it'll push your 100 budget. Cheaper Nvidia/ATI cards use shared memory (your system RAM), so it's better to spend a little more. A card with its own dedicated memory is much better 35+

    I think he means he has an ATI pci-e gfx card already? As already mentioned aim for a P31 chipset board 2Gb of DDR2 and whatever CPU you can get for the balance Celeron E1400 or pref Pentium Dual Core E5200.

    No no... I've already got a ATI Hd thing, PSU would be extra.

    Don't like m\board with onboard vga.
