thank you guys, both sites not seen yet and one computer has caught my eye on hthere. thanks for quick replys.

is a nVidia 8800GTS 320MB PCI-E Graphics good for latest games?

  Acx 23:52 22 Oct 2007

Yes a good card

Probably better value for money than 8800GTS 640MB

High resolution games better with 8800GTX (but that's about £150 more).

Yes its very good for the money, there are better cards of course but they are more expensive. For your budget I think this is probably the card to go for.

Wish I could afford one. It will play everything out there at the moment with full video settings at a good resolution.

For more reading about graphics cards click here please bear in mind this was written in July so its a bit out of date (things move fast) but it'll give you the idea without getting too OTT.
Well worth a read for anyone wanting to play games on a PC.

Think this has been discussed before

but it looks like they have upgraded the graphic card

  brad paisley 01:09 23 Oct 2007

so it seems a good pc, but only complaint was the graphics card, but that has now been updated. so seems ok to me, or am i missing somethink?

  Acx 01:39 23 Oct 2007

I agree it looks very good,

It says on the site
"This machine was rated as 'excellent, innovative and cheap' by PC Advisor", I must admit I have never heard of the company.

But if you have read the article and it got a good review in the mag you should be OK
do you have a link to it?
