    At the moment i'm looking around at some components to piece together a new PC. All i need is a CPU (and heat sink and fan) and motherboard (as i have the rest).
    Nothing flashy, middle of the range and reasonably cheap

    I was considering a ASUS A7V8X with Athlon 2800 (with Cooler Master Aero 7+) which i found for (all in) £176.54

    Does anyone have any better options and/or prices?

    The A7V8X does not support dual DDR. You can get an Nforce2 chipset ASUS board for close to the same price that will support dual ddr. ABIT also has a good family of nforce2 chipset boards.

    Make sure whatever board you get supports Dual DDR, 400 mHz FSB and 400 mHz RAM. Especially with a 2800 cpu.

    If you want to stay cheap and still have a killer PC then you cant beat the Barton 2500 ($90) and the Abit NF7-S ($94.99) both from newegg.

    Does Newegg.com ship internationally?
    Newegg.com does not ship internationally. At this time we only ship within the United States and Puerto Rico.
