A 'budget' build to me is something below the £400 mark. Oddly, it's easily achieveable.
- 8800GS/9600GSO (Slightly lower tuned 8800GT)
- Mid range dual core AMD such as the 4600x2
- Cheap mATX case such as the Cooler Master Elite 340
- 2GB DDR2 667/800
- Nice mATX motherboard, prefferably a 'newer' chipset such as the P35 (some of you may disagree, the P35 is progressively getting older)
And the rest, which shouldn't be too hard to pick out. This is bearing in mind that the user already owns a monitor.
