It would just be something more upto date, since my pc seems a bit behind the times, what standard is a nvidia geforce 4 mx440? don't really play on games at the minute but wouldn't mind a few, will that be ok with an updated machine as i know they are expensive graphics cards.

I'm using a GeForce 4 MX 440 too. It's about 4 years old and would struggle with most modern games, but for a bog standard every day browse the net PC it does the job. Used to play Medal of Honour on it all the time, coped fine with that.

As for building a new PC, it depends what you want it to do.

If you want to play the latest games etc, then i'd recommend you getting one custom built. If you just use it for browsing the net, word processing and general pissing about, just buy a bog standard thing from Dell or whereever...
