They've probably seen you and added the most powerful spell checker in the world into your package. Just uncheck it.

She only wants to pay £400 AND get a flat TFT monitor.

So a £300 budget is all i got for the base.

But should be abel to get

3.0 Ghz
512 RAM
80 SATA
128MB ATI Radeon® X300 SE

She only wants if for net and those age of empire type games.

Should them kind of games run ok on this spec pc?

For Dial-up you'll need a modem, make sure the system you specify lists an "Integrated 56K Data/Fax Modem".

On most of the 5150's for home use this comes as standard. I've bought a couple of DELL 9100 machines lately and noticed these don't always come with modems, so check.

DELL do now seem to provide a 10/100 Network Card as standard which is good, as they realise most people will want to network and use a router etc. But you won't need a network card anyway if you are only using a dial up connection, just the modem option above.


NB. The 5150's are good machines, but I've noticed that if you upgrade a few bits and bobs when ordering it often works out slightly cheaper going for a 9150 which normally has a better specification as standard...
