After agreeing a refund with MESH, ERG!!, i am now looking for a computer that will work. I was hoping that someone would help me find something that is reliable and with these specs.

Intel 4 Processor
3.2GHz, 800MHz FSB, 3MB Cache or close enough
1024mb RAM
200-250GB HD
Multi-Format Dual Layer DVD-RW Drive
256MB ATI Radeon 9550 Graphics (or a graphics card that will be able to handle quality games and online gaming)
Keyboard and Mouse (not bothered about wireless)
Microsoft Windows XP Media Center
19" or 17" TFT Flat Panel Monitor

The 630 Elite here:

is not too far away from your specs. You will want to add a monitor and OS of your choice, and maybe upgrade to a better graphics card. Your budget seems to allow for this.

That is something that i would like to discuss. What should i look for in a Graphics Card. Having no experience with them as my current Dell PC has an Integrated Graphics Card i dont know what to look for.

So could someone help me and tell me what to look for as the subject of Graphics Cards go?
