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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
