You could try a Warehouse Suplus outlet like

click here

Phone them and see what they can do (they have an advert on page 149 of the latest PCA).

I have never used them, but they look ok and seem to have stores you can go in to if there is a problem.

The only other choice I can see is ebay/secondhand.

Will it is through evesham technology who recently went into administration so you could always ask them through ask the seller if they could provide you with a vat receipt

Not really because everyone is looking pc's with pci express slots so that is what the manufacturers are giving them. The only other thing would be to build one yourself if you are comfortable with that. If you see a cheap system look for the model number of the motherboard it uses and then search the motherboard manufacturers website to see if it has an agp slot

oh and would the on board graphics be a problem when we put the card in or is it simple to disable them

Still think you should phone someone like Morgan computers - they will provide a vat reciept.

To be honest I wouldnt worry about the agp card slot, as you can buy a pci card (at a later date if you wish) for click here

Not the best card but still a better option than an AGP card.
