    Budget: £400

    The only requirement is I want a decent graphics card...

    Not much money but it's just a secondary PC to stick in my room.

    Are u looking for a monitor as well or just the tower? If u just want the tower u can build ur own for about $200 and spend the extra on a graphics card... It won't be the greatest computer but u can get about 1.8ghz CPU,128mb ram, 80gb hd and a case at newegg for just under 200

    Edit: wait whats £400 in dollors lol

    400.00 GBP = 767.784 USD

    I can't be bothered to import though.

    Thanks for the site Samurai, one of them would be fine.

    PCManUK - Just use their customise settings until you run out of money. I bought a barebones from them, the year before last, no problems even after much tinkering.
