Default Webcam recommendations

Hi,
I need to buy a webcam for Skype chatting.
Any recommendations?
- I will be only using on XP
- I will be using it only for Skype chatting.

What's a decent one to buy & how much will it cost?

Checked out a Zebronics or Intex one last day. 5M pixel it read. Cost 550rs. I might buy it soon.

5MP - that seems to be overkill for a web chatting. And 550 Rs seems to be a very low price for a 5MP webcam.

Its not effective 5mp. they are interpolated.

Go for iball twist or any cam from iball. they are really good and offers quality as good as more expensive creative or logitech.

Tx, SirAlec
Any idea how much it costs & what kind of warranty there is?

Also what are the minimum spec I should look for when buying a webcam to be used solely for Skype kind of chatting?

Buy Logitech - reliable and works like a charm. Low light sensitivity is better. Works out of the box with Skype and other apps, and the bundled software is quite good.
