    You bumped your thread twice less than half an hour after posting it? :lolwut:

    But yeah, not going to happen, at all. Check eBay for second hand machines, because you're looking at about £500 at least really.

    You haven't got a chance, even £500 is probably too little.

    A desktop maybe, no chance with a laptop though.

    The Processor alone is around £150, then you need a PSU, Motherboard, Ram, Case, CD Drive?, HDD and Graphics Card?

    Try the Dell Outlet store (google it) - they sell refurbished laptops at 30-40% off market price, though as a result you don't get to pick what components are in it.

    The current line of Dell laptops has GeForce 525M/540M dedicated graphics - a mid-range card that will let you play most games at decent setting. You'll have to search the available models yourself to see what's available.

    You aren't going to find dedicated graphics in a budget Sandybridge laptop. The reason? Because Sandybridge comes with HD 3000 graphics which is not only one of the best integrated graphics chipsets ever but also offers fantastic priceerformance ratio and comes with a range of laptop friendly features, including CPU power management integration. There is just no good reason for a manufacturer to choose nVidia over HD3000 for their budget line.

    If you want a games machine, you have to pay for it.
