Well, I don't think he knows how to install a video card

I have that same video card on my computer, and it performs pretty well for onboard video. And for light gaming, works perfectly fine. Plus that computer is already $450...

I don't want to start an argument here, so I'll say this one last thing. He couldn't even find the system specs of his computer, which is done with Everest or even just Windows key + Pause.

You think he'll know how to build? ?

But for the money, you can get more. And maybe you might need a new PSU, but I don't know the specs of it.

We'll see what he wants to do when he comes back online. For now, just wait for those darned spammers to rule this thread...

Yea. Trust me, I don't know "ABS" , but that computer is a big upgrade from a Sempron 3000 and onboard 64MB video. I believe that chipset has 256MB..

We need YOUR decision. Do you want a pre-built or a custom-built computer?

lol yeah what do you want to do with your $400, because you'd be surprised that 400 will get you a pretty good gaming computer i you use some of your old base parts like cd drive, and ram, and maybe cpu.
