Am thinking a similar cpu, 4gb of ram ( don't need 8gb ), 160 gb hdd as don't need much in the way of storage, dvd writer and a reasonable graphics card ?
intel(r) 82915g/gv/910gl express chipset < Thats the graphics adapter I currently have, where can I find the update for it along with my other drivers/
http://downloadcenter.intel.com ). If it is not intel and you still have items in device manager with yellow exclamation marks etc then you will obviously need to establish what they are ( make / model etc ). Should be able to use something like SIW ( assuming it is still free )
Home Edition ( scroll to the bottom or near the bottom of the below page )
Buy SIW Pro or Download SIW Home Edition
Attachment 14636 here is a screen
and im currently on the site, ran an automatic computer check and here was the responce for my graphics driver
"Product Detected Intel® 915/910G

A customized computer manufacturer driver is installed on your computer. The Intel Driver Update Utility is not able to update the driver.

It's not a Dell is it?
How did you spend that much on one they sell from £20??
I didn't realise it was a Dell - in that case do as Arthur says above and download all the latest drivers from Dells website :)

Yeah its a dell and oMG! @Oaktech that is some sweet spec for so cheap, I wish I could build one
Oh damn! hey guys I can run wakfu pretty good now! Now my question is, will buying a new graphics card for my computer enable me to run 3 clients? Oh and whats the best graphics card I can get for my computer with its spec?
Not sure a graphics card will give much of a boost to a flash game... if you do get one though, is your case low profile or full size?
Low profile ;
Full size ;
If it's low profile you'd need to shop very specifically for a low profile card. That's if you have a pci express slot to fit one in... they often don't have them for cost saving.

Make sure it's clean - those machines suck up dust better than most Dysons.
I always like to search schtrade.com now and again.. we bought some DC7900 Intel E8400 machines with 4GB ram a few months back for £49 including VAT and delivery each.. still had 6 months warranty too! These are the ones we use as our main office machines.
hmm this is really hard, damn. I hate having to be so cheap lol, I just cant wait till the end of the month, i really want to game badly now xD, i think its low profile :/
