That looks better, but I would still check out if a local computer shop could build the same at a more faverable price every little helps.

I think you could do better for the money the graphic card in that unit isnt top of the range by any means and borrows some of its video memory from system RAM.

Is £600 your top end? Would you be up for building a system yourself?
