That does look a good one, but maybe slightly over budget.

I can recommend the microsoft lifecam vx1000- £20 new in places like argos

The logitech quickcam stx plus is also good - about £20 - £25, dad got his from PC World for £20 a few weeks back

And i have a logitech quickcam pro 5000 which is excellent - and £40 new, bit i managed to get it for £17 on Ebay a few months back, very lucky with that IMO.

anyway, all good cams and tested on skype.

i found this website good as well when looking as it shows screenshots etc of the cameras in action
