    Get yourself a mid range Geforce 8 Card and processor wise i'd recommend a Intel Core 2 Duo or if you want to keep the costs down go with a Phenom or Dual Core Athlon.

    Overclockers.com is a good site to get parts , 4gb of ram these days is like £65

    Can you overclock at all? if so buy a cheap Core 2 duo whack in a zalman cooler and oc the crap outta it!
    i agree with what you said about the graphics card.

    phenom costs more than core 3 duo. phenom is a quad core.

    why on eath would you need 4gb or RAM.

    I don't think there many games on the market that will take advantage of more than 2gb of ram.

    But I'm thinking on a future proof kinda level if 4gb costs like £65 you might aswell go with that option then you will have a machine that in terms of performance and future proofing will last you longer.

    4gb of ram comes in handy if your the kinda user who likes to have Various applications running at the same time i.e CS3 and Dreamweaver

    Bearing in mind you will need the 64 bit version of Vista to support 4 gigs properly.

    Processor wise I personally would go with a Athlon X2 5600 there cheap , perform well and the bonus is it's a socket AM2 you then have the option to upgrade to a Phenom,

    If you want to game, that computer would be nice.

    EXCEPT:

    "Graphics Media Accellorator"

    It's simply horrible.
    Slows down your games.

    I've got one.

    I've got the juice to run some pretty nice stuff.

    Except my graphics card is like the one-legged man in a hundred-mile marathon.


    Nvidia and ATI and AMD are pretty reliable as far as I know.
    That turtle has a brief case. It must be going to work. I hope it has a good day.

    you dont have that option with laptops. esp. dell. laptops geberally dont have user-replaceble, or even pro-replaceable gfx/
