post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
im looking into buying parts for the cheapest pc possible to build and sell as a little experiment. i need a power supply but buying the cheapest psu might not be smart.
these are the parts, i'm looking on ebuyer.com but will later compare with amazon prices:
AMD Sempron 145 2.8GHz 45W
Biostar A780L3C Socket AM3
4gb ram ddr3
cd drive
micro atx case

this is the cheapest psu they have, what do you think?:

XFX Core Edition 450 watts or Seasonic G 360 watts or if you can find one a Super Flower Golden Green 350 watts

That has a 120-240v selector switch... that means it is something like a 6 year old PSU design. JUNK.

If the UK was part of the EU, they wouldn't be able to even sell that.
Once again...

In the I-guess-passable range, you should be able to find the Antec VP350, but that costs 3x as much.

Cheapest computers with new individually sourced parts are totally not worth it. You can find refurb or even new systems with older parts on sale at retailers dumping stock, Dell / Lenovo / HP / etc. web stores, etc. with better prices (well, if including Windows cost).
