As above - i'm away on business next week and will be taking my laptop with me. It's got built in camera and microphone, but wanted to get one for the desktop so i can skype the kids while i'm away.

needs to be something i can buy from a shop and get before tues morning.

any ideas on where i could get a good one at a decent price?

I wouldn't bother with a megapixel image unless youknow you will have a very good internet connection - 640x480 will be good enough for web cam purposes. I would also recommend a headset with mic as it cuts out echos or you will have to be careful where you position the mic.

Something like this would be fine IMO:
