What i want to know is ,i want a 128mb graphics card for the PC price rage around 50 pound and what memory can i get for the PC ?Does it have to be PC2700 DDR SDRAM or can i mix them up as i heared that some memory run at different speeds.And any comment on the motherboard as the bloke in the shop told me it was a good one, but myself think he has skanked me...?

Well, as for the memory, as long as you get DDR memory that is equal to or faster then PC2700 DDR SDRAM it will work in your computer, it will just run at the slower speed of 2700.  Like PC2100 would NOT work in your systemk but PC3000 ram WOULD work, it would just run at the speed of a PC2700.  As for the video card, a good medium range card would be the Nvida 5200 FX or the ATI 9200, Both have 128MB worth of video memory and should preform decently for games and 3d applications.

I agree you don't want anything other than PC2700 DDR SDRAM, I would check the current chips in there, check if they have ram chips on one side only or both. Some boards do not like double sided mixed in with single or just have problems with double. Ice has great links to newegg, which is a great place to go , so basically in all this chitter chatter, I agree that Icemans got your answer.
