From the spec it sounds decent and not a bad price.

Do you know if the components are branded, eg. Graphics (which you don't mention, FX 5200, Radeon 9200?) the basic chips are all made by Nvidia or ATI (usually), but then sent out to third parties, e.g. Connect3D, Sapphire, who stick the graphics chips onto a PCB and put their brand on it. If it's made by a good maufacturer you'll get good components on the card, a bad manufacturer will sell the same chipset cheaper but use poorer components so you won't get top performance.

It's unusual to get 1GB of RAM for around that price. Can you give any more info?

chip for the graphics is nvidia i think dont know without the spec sheet not to hand damb bloody untidyness.

The ram is ddr 2700 and the machine was just modified and they offered it for 50 quid and i do quite a lot of us of games and programmes.thought it were a good price so said yes.
