will this take a graphics card and be OK for gaming?



The text on the PC World web site says it is a mini tower case, which as the name suggests can be very small and may not take a good size graphics card.

Bigwheels thread (now showing as expired) has a bit of chat on changing graphics cards. Not a gamer myself but specs would suggest this machine will fly and therefore games with updated graphics card should be an issue.

Don't bother about the case. The parts themselves are worth more than 260POUNDS!

Hers is what the Dell US site has to say. Range of graphics cards that could be fitted when ordering from them and also expansion slots, case dimensions, etc.

Graphics & Video
Integrated Intel® GMA 3100 graphics2 up to ATI RadeonTM HD 3650 256MB graphics2 options available

Whether you’re gaming, watching DVDs or editing video on your Dell InspironTM desktop, the quality of the graphics you experience is only as good as your video card. Along with the display, the video card affects the number of colors available, contrast, resolution and overall performance.
Sound Cards
Integrated 7.1 Channel Audio up to Creative SoundBlaster® X-Fi Xtreme Audio (D)†

While an integrated sound solution is fine for playing MP3s and CDs, simple presentations, and other basic computing, a sound card can dramatically broaden your audio horizons. In addition to crisp multi-channel sound with maximum realism, sound cards offer high-resolution, low-latency and feature-rich recording for audio enthusiasts and professionals.

would have to upgrade the supply if you went beyond a 4770 or 5770 etc. 300w is low.

I bought this from Currys instore a couple of days ago for my sons birthday in Feb. The tower is more like a full size rather than mini. I too would like to know if and what graphics card to fit.

will I won't I...lol...

You are very unlikely to find these discontinued Vista machines in 95% of stores. If you do find 1 it is probably the display one. Not really a deal as it will be very hard to find a boxed new one.

yeah looks like both PCworld and Currys now showing temporarily out of stock.
