I know it is a bit annoying when people do this but is this a decent system from the Dell Outlet store. All I want to use it for is the internet, a bit of music and playing Football Manager. Will it be quick enough to play FM? Thanks

should be fine but check the box for the fm game, some can be quite graphically demanding
If this systems graphics card is on the min spec u will have to turn some graphical features off

football manager is mostly text based, and not very graphic at all. My work lappy plays it well and is well below them specs

OK thanks a lot.

should easily be able to play and with the large database.i was playing fm07 on my computer which only had 512 ram and 160gig harddrive adn although a bit slow managed it fine.

Cheers guys - have bitten the bullet and ordered one. Can't really afford it but as my current PC was literally built in the last millenium I think I had to at some point.
