    INFO ON WHAT WEBCAM

    Son has recently hinted he wants one because we have a very old one which does not seem to cut the mustard any longer...for some reason.

    Cannot look for any because I do not have a clue what I am looking for. Mainly uses it for MSN (he is 14). What spec should I be looking at?

    Max buget is about £40.

    Hope some of you are still up......

    What pixels or size will be the better quality? He is complaining that the one we have is useless so don't want to get something as bad

    I spose, the higher the better. Your budget of £40, you could probably by about 5 different ones and compare! lol


    I have ]THIS which is pretty good! However, I need a driver for Vista!

    What webcam does he have at the mo??
