Definitely not worth it without a monitor, or at least it wouldn't have been a month ago. I don't know how much the falling pound against the dollar has pushed prices up though.

For comparison I built a Q6600 and 4850 system using high quality components (Akasa Eclipse Case, Asus P5Q pro, X-fi titanium, Gigabyte Passive 4850, Enermax Modu82+ PSU etc.) for the same price in mid-october.

Reading the spec it looks like the video card is on the board
Graphics Memory 1024 dedicated up to 2815 MB The higher the memory the better quality images you are display
Reckon you could get this for cheaper elsewhere.. I would suggest buying the aldi one mentioned above and put in a good graphics card for £180. With a dedicated graphics card that is using its own CPU you would get better performance anyway.
