My mate is looking for a base unit only, for around £300-400.

Its been a while since i made a PC so dont really know what good graphics cards are out at the moment. All he wants it for is the new football manager plus a few other new games that would be coming out.

Im looking for a prebuilt on for him, can be online or in a "big" shop, as im not too sure on the graphics front anymore.

If anyone has time can you hunt around for a good deal please :-)

Thanks

On board graphics. No good for games.

Even assuming the reviewer did get a geforce 8200 (even though the system is advertised as having intel on-board graphics) the 8200 itself is no great shakes.

This looks ok if you have an OS to istall on it (who hasn't?).

you want to look for something with ATI Radeon 4650 or higher or a Geforce 8800GT or higher. Those will play basically any game give or take (i have a 9800GT) on mid-high settings.

You should make a career out of it! So what tweaks did you do to achieve such an increase in performance?
