Fer playin music that would eat it for breakfast but make sure you invest in some decent speakers to make full use of the 7.1 sound...

8600gt for £36 is a bargain.

citadel I might be wrong here but I think the price is not for the graphics card but the extra amount an upgrade on the original card will be.
IE its fitted with a 8600GT for example and if you want a 8800GT it costs another £36.

That's it, it orginally came with a lower spec card. I've been advised to change the ram to corsair, what do you think people?
