    yeah its without moniter

    What computer you have got now? Give the full specifiction of it. £250 is not that much for a new computer that would play COD4 with ease unless you can build a computer yourself (or you have someone that would do this for you) ... maybe upgrade ....

    You could pick up a
    Intel dual core 2.0GHz
    2GB Ram
    80GB HDD
    512MB gfx

    no OS

    on ebuyer for about £180 if you build it yourself.

    Can someone help me please.

    whats the best agp card around?

    thanks

    Forgot to mention for around £40 dont mind if used.

    AMD Radeon HD 3850, it's a bit more expensive than £40 though. You might be able to pick up a second hand X1950 or 7900 for that price though.

    @hot_martyn2008. Do you have a copy of windows XP that you could legitimately use on the new computer? Anything else you could use? £250 for a complete base unit isn't very much.

    yep, a bit more expensive - ATI - 3850 approx £100
    I am not sure whether £40 will be enough to buy any 1950 or 7900...even if ...what about PSU? Branded 400W it's a minimum.
    IMO - investing any money in AGP is absolutely pointless unless you have got relatively new [email protected] s939 or some Pentium D + plenty of RAM - that would back spending some money ( maybe 40-50£) ,

    Go for something like : E2160 + [email protected] Intel P35 or nvidia 650i (Foxconn P35A,Abit IP35-E,ASUS P5K,EVGA,XFXi...) + 2GB [email protected] + DVDRW(Pioneer or Samsung) + 250GB (Samsung,Hitachi) + 8600GT (i.e. XXX made by [email protected]£50) + 460W [email protected]ldn't cost much more than you have got ...even with Windows
