    Bought my quad core from this lot, decent components and price Think insured delivery is an extra £10 or they have a lower spec tower for £249

    Are you looking for new or SH? If SH I have one FS I can send you details of.

    To get an XP install on a new PC the best way is to look for a 'business' PC... If it comes with Vista business or ultimate installed, you can downgrade automatically to XP Professional.

    So for example, if you purchased a HP base unit/keyboard/mouse from Ebuyer with Vista business/XP Pro downgrade, you could add a monitor and pay @ £370 delivered for a nice XP system.

    You can replace integrated graphics with a better graphics card easily as long as the motherboard has a PCI-E 16x slot.

    You MAY need to look at the gfx card if you wanted crysis on decent settings, but the rest is pretty decent

    Edbug you have PM.
