Is this a good deal on this desktop?

It seems good since I can just go to my loclal walmart and buy it. But, I've heard bad things about celerons. All I'm trying to do is play World of Warcraft. Would it run fine?

intergrated graphics and WOW will not go well together.

You can build a semi decent rig your self for that amount, with recycling some of your old stuff.

Nope, it's not.

That will run WoW about as well as my Mac will run Windows.

A self-build will contribute to money saving, and a little extra kick in the pants as far as that PC's performance goes. Your video would be hurtin bad for World of Warcraft.
