and i third that , onboard graphics is very weak for games , i dont recommend getting any prebuilt , better build that way youll get higher quality parts/know exactly what your getting/more warranty in alot of cases

i built this one for you , bit more expensive then the walmart one but worth it

Antec LifeStyle SONATA II Piano Black CASE+PSU 74.99$ after rebate

ASUS A8N-E 92.29$

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 154$

CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB PC3200 66$

GIGABYTE 6800GS (149.99$ after rebate)

Seagate 80gb sata2 8mb buffer 58$


NEC ND-3550A DVD BURNER 38.88$

total after rebates+shipping 684.94$

might wanna change the hd to 120gb for a bit more (better stick to seagate for warranty reasons:5yrs)

anything over 3200+ and you shouldn't notice much difference in most games.

if you are going to buy single core there is not enough performance difference to buy anything more than a 3200+. If you want more buy a dual core.

Core 2 Duo E6400, DFI Infinity 975X/G, 2x 512mb DDR2 667mhz, Albatron 7900gt, WD 200gb SATA, Samsung DVD-RW, Silverstone ST-50EF 500w PSU.
