    Hello, i need some help in getting a spec to build a new pc that i will build myself. I currently own a medion md8800 (Pentium D 830) that i have had lots of probs with. Aldi have said that they will take the pc back. I have a budget of £850 for everything excluding the monitor. I would like Windows MCE 2005, dual core and 2GB of RAM. I dont play on games alot and when i do i only play them on medium details. Thanks

    It's got the All-In-Wonder card you asked about. It's not quite as good as the previous graphic card I specced earlier but as your not a hard-core gamer this will easily do the job you want, plus it has 125 channels available!

    That looks ideal for the intended use. :)
