    I'll pay the asking price if you can confirm if this is half decent enough to play games on or not.

    Looks like it only has PCI-E x1 on the motherboard... So its all but shit for games unless you get a PCI games, then it's only good for half life era.

    If its PCI-E then it will be fine for the latest graphics cards, though you might have issues with power for it depending on the PSU.
    You can buy a 2 x Molex to 6pin PCI-E adapter for a few quid if you have the connectors on the PSU.

    If it only has PCI however...then yeah not worth it for games really.

    It's pci only, not sure if it has the connectors you mention on the PSU, think i'll just stick a NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS 512MB PCI card in it and see how it goes.

    If you need a PCI card, the best you can get is a Raedon X1300.

    The connectors won't be needed for a PCI only card.
    If it was PCI-E you can buy an adpater to convert 2 x 4pin molex (ide hard drive/ide dvd drive power) to a 6pin PCI-E to power the graphics card.

    As you say though it's PCI so those won't be needed.
