    Hi posted up here a ages ago seeking a spec for a computer for use for graphic design and linex kindly gave me this spec, I had to back out back then but I can buy a system for £400 now is this spec still about right?



    grapihcs card:

    i had alot of debate with myself over this, i wanted to tell you go with the 2600 but the internet told me i was wrong. Cant go for the old dx 9 cards as far as i can tell they are not being made anymore.


    should hold up, if unsure £9 gets you a 500w version


    cheapest i could find, and still looks good...

    HDD (if needed):

    or ive seen something like this at novatech-
