Advice on buying a Desktop PC

Hi there,

I have just bought a cycle turbo trainer virtual reality machine thingy. It doesn;t run to well on my XP laptop (40gb HD (20GB free), 2Ghz CPU, 1Gb RAM, Win XP Pro 32 Bit).

Recommended min spec is P4 Dual Core, 1.7Ghz, 1GB Memory, 2Gb disk space.

I'm thinking of getting a cheap tower PC just to run it. Can anyone recommend a good Tower (I have a TV I will run for the graphics) that will run this fast and have a good graphics card? I guess it's just a case of searching Ebay so just after some general advice. How much should I look to pay? I wouldn't use it for anything else.

Thanks

Depends on how much you want to spend but this from eBay would do the job.
