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.

PSU:

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

tower:

sorry sup ,cut and paste these from my post some time ago, looks like I have to start from the beggining again !.
I have been advised novatech are a good company to supply computers and have seen these specs below on their site, but no mention of mother board? also a price from dell direct which has also been advised. I will get moniter as seperate element not included in this budget and I have operating system. Sound card and second drive I will get later on.thanks if you can cast your eye over these specs and tell me what you think.
