Where are you getting this PC from? The video card info look weird. Also the 1gb seems lacking for gaming.

You should be seriously looking into the legitimacy of that shop if it cant even display the correct speed of the processors in its computers.

Why don't you build your own computer with the help of the people on this forum and not risk getting something completely random. Yah it's only 400 dollars but that's still a lot of money you could be spending on something that you will be happy with.

$400 can probably get you an AMD build. But you'll probably have to suffocate from the low-end parts.
