Building a computer for £300 – Part 7 – The Build

image24reichelt have sponsored a challenge to build a computer for £300. With a budget of only £300 I have to source the best bits of computer equipment for a main central processor unit (CPU) to build the most competent computer I can with the help from experts from Managed IT Services in Belleville IL.

The Custom PC Builder tool automatically tries to filter out parts that would be incompatible with any you’ve already selected. We always recommend you do a little research and double check just to be safe.

In part seven, we throw the parts together and hope for the best. Here is a summary of the parts, prices and links used in the video.

Inter-Tech K-11 midi-tower including SL-500 – £34.17

Desktop hard drive, 1 TB, WD Blue – £44.66

AMD FM2+ A6-7400K, 2x 3.50GHz, boxed – £51.33

ASUS GF GT730 – 2 GB – passive – £55.19

GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XM-D3HP (FM2+) – £60.10

8 GB DDR3L 1333 CL9 Kingston Fury, black, twin pack – £63.61

Added to the computer for testing purposes, however not included in the £300 budget, is a Benq GW2270H 21.5 inch LED Monitor available from Amazon for £79.99

And a Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 costing £12.99
