I don't have any experience with the graphics card that was included, but everything else would be good. It's all a matter of opinion though. The only thing that's not 'super great' is the processor. It's not bad, but could be better. Overall, it's not a bad 'pre-made' comp. It would be fully upgradeable as well.

For what its worth. I've got a P4 2.66ghz non HT processor and it has NEVER let me down when gaming. So, you probably wouldnt be to dissapointed overall. IMO anyway.
