Bung in a half decent graphics card (probably not more than an 8800GT 256mb) and you've got a good budget gaming PC there.

Is a 300W PSU enough to support a decent graphics card in there?

According to these numbers i would say yes

http://www.legitreviews.com/article/607/12/

Would be wary myself even though the one showing in article is an overclocked more power hungry model. Current on the 12v rail is at least as important as power i know nothing about PSU in this case other than power.

BTW don't always belive the numbers i run an 8800gt 512mb and three large hard disks on 375watt PSU no problem even though official minimum spec for 8800gt is usually quoted as minimum 500 Watts ;-)

I'm looking to get a pc for my bedroom to use mainly as an internet pc, with some office work planning on hooking up through vga to my samsung LCD TV and want to spend as little as possible. This could be a good deal for me, but I know virtually nothing about PC's.

Is it any good for what I need?

Yes except you will need Operating System, mouse and keyboard other than that yeah should be good:)

Cheers elflembro :thumbsup:

I think a wireless mouse & keyboard is probably the way to go, much less restrictive. I'll have to appologise for being totally dumb on this one, how much is the OS (operating system?)

£57 quid on the same site as pc system, there is free Operating system software out there but best stick with windows for easy of use etc if unsure

Either of them Vista is newest version but a lot of people have stuck with XP for various reasons

Hope this helps

Just looking over the extended motherboard spec and it doesn't look anything like the original?

ie. The op says it's VIA then you say Intel, the system spec says pc6400 but it cannot be run at that speed.

So just wondering where you found the extended spec and which is correct :?

Either way, a pretty good deal :thumbsup:

The motherboard is very long in the tooth and only officially supports DDR2-667 so I guess they are over-clocking the system to run it at 800MHz; it’s not a problem just pointing it out. Only 2 DIMM sockets as well which will disappoint some.
It officially only supports up to 800MHz FSB and doesn’t support Quad core at all but it does surprisingly support the newer 45nm CPUs; E8400 etc.
The CPU is not actually a Core 2 Duo but a Pentium Dual Core; the same underlying technology but a bit less performance especially in games.
The Overclockers spec doesn’t match that found at Asus website in a number of cases.
Scan sell the barebones system at the heart of this for £67.67 + P&P; it may be less elsewhere.

It does come with a floppy drive but I’m still voting cold even though it’s a Sony one. :w00t:

The Dell Outlet Store has some good deals at this moment including 3 of the spec below and many others:

Inspiron 530 Core 2 Duo (2.33GHz
Vista Home Premium
2048MB DDR2 667 [2*1024
320GB 7200rpm SATA Hard Drive
256MB ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT
DVD+/-RW, 16

System Price ~£231 delivered.

It doesn’t have a Sony floppy drive which will put some of you off. :-D
