Well the 4gb of ram is a waste. 2gb is max for right now. The cpu is OK. Get a new video card for sure. Like a x1800,x1900 series or a 7900gt.

If it had a dual core or a fast amd cpu and a decent video card, I would say it OWNS!

If I were to upgrade my card to a 512 ATI 1900 would that help its gaming side?
by the sounds of it next time you get a new pc you need to do more research. with the questions you are asking you should either know the answers before you get a new pc or be asking the questions then

I agree with this man!

But you said yourself your not a gamer so whats the problem? that pc will fit the bill perfectly for everything else.

The computer is ok if you really are not an avid gamer. Why the 4 gigs of ram, though?? THat's pretty useful. You could have spent that extra $200 on a better CPU, or video card, etc, etc...
