New PC

I am looking at buying a new PC for games and general use. The one I was looking at was the Advent PQD5002 from Pc World and a graphics card at about £100. How well would this pc perform for new games and which graphics card should I get.

Thanks

you need to find out if it has a pci express slot, if it has a ati 4850 card is good.

Those cards look great. I will probably get that one but will i need a more powerful PSU. I don't know which psu comes with this pc as the description on the site is quite basic (click here) and I can't find any other information on this pc.
thanks

After finding the pc world support site which has much more detailed specs of the pc, I found that it has a TLM725 case (click here) which contains a ATX 250-350W power supply.

you will need a better psu. 550 to 650 of the best quality you can afford.
