Which computer

  [DELETED] 16:17 09 Jan 2006

I need a new computer to run a program for a new cycle trainer i have just bought. The program is a virtual reality so needs to a have fairly good graphics. Here are the recomended specs:
Processor: Pentium IV, Memory: 512MB, Free disc space: 850MB, Videocard: DirectX9 compatible 3D card with 128MB (GeForce FX or similar). Windows 2000 or XP.

I have a budget of £700.

Ideally would prefer a laptop but knot sure I could get the specs with that bugdet.

Cheers for any help

If you want a laptop you could try this:

Whilst accepting that it doesn't have 128Mb graphics, it should be OK for your needs.
Alternatively, this is a nice dektop from the same source:

What about this Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo A 1667G

A little over my budget but should not be a problem

Well, maybe, but this one from Novatech has almost identical specs. (only difference I can see is an Athlon 64 3700 versus the F-S Athlon 64 4000) and costs about £100 less.
