  1. It looks like it will work. The Packard Bell has an open PCI-E x16 slot according to the specs. Graphics is listed as Nvidia 7050 which is an onboard graphics solution.

    the GT240 doesn't appear to need an external PCI-E power connector so the PCI-E slot should provide all the power it needs.
  2. Well Calvin, that PC is not built for gaming at all. That E3300 is really going to struggle at 2.5Ghz/800FSB and only 1MB of L2 Cache. Also the PC only has 2GB of RAM with isn't really recommend for gaming.

    A GT240 will definitely help, I would imagine you could play CoD on medium settings at something like 1280 x 1024 Res. Not sure about WoW as I've never played it

    Please don't buy from PCWorld they love to rip you off and they don't know jack about PC's

    I wouldn't recommend anything from PC World.

    I realise this is over budget but its hard to build a gaming PC on a small budget.

  8. You my friend just contradicted yourself.

    If a PC built on a <£300 budget can play CSS and WoW with good FPS then its a <£300 gaming PC.
