Hi folks.I'm finally getting round to getting a new desktop PC for christmas.I don't play games at all.It's just for every day surfing of the internet,downloading music and watching the occasional HD movie.I want a good fast machine with a decent graphics card.I am hoping to spend around £300-400?I would appreciate some thoughts/recommendations.(A barebones system isn't an option for me!)I've had a look here http://www.novatech.co.uk/pc/ but don't see anything mentioned about a graphics card so would I need to add that?Would buying a Dell from a store like PC world get me what I'm after ?Any help/advice is much appreciated.P.s What OS would you recommend as up to now I have still been using Xp pro.Thank you.

If your not editing photos/videos or playing games there is really no need to pay for a graphics card . you can spend your money on better RAM or CPU http://3xs.scan.co.uk/ConfigureSystem.asp?SystemID=1270 or slightly over your budget is http://3xs.scan.co.uk/ShowSystem.asp?SystemID=1271 , this one has a quad core CPU and plenty of RAM . Both come already loaded with windows & home premium 64 bit
