Default how does this look?

im thinking of buying this (i know its not great but i dont have much cash)

this system

it doesn't have a graphic's card tho.

im thinking of buying THIS

what im wondering is, will this play games such as WoW and future MMORPG's/FPS games fairly well or will it just suck, i dont want to play on low settings, so will this run on high or not?

thanks

Ditto. The 7600GT will play WoW without a hitch. It will play BF2/2142 great. Now, something like FEAR will slow it down some, but it'll still look great.

I sort of think the computer is a lot for what is inside of it, but then again, I don't use eBay, and it's in pounds

ok, well ive looked at a few sites and ive found ebay to be be cheaper than these.

there is also THIS

its a bit more but would that make that much of a difference with the graphics card i linked or will the difference between them not matter that much?

Well I only see one problem with the computer you first picked, it says that the 3200 cpu is running at 3.2ghz. It only runs at 2.0ghz

I think the guy doesnt really know processers and is using the first 2 numbers of the model.
