Default Is this agood PC?

Hey people. I'm not too good with electronics and computers. If fact I'm horrible with them. I can barely use the microwave cause it has way too many buttons. lol. I just hit it until it works. my girlfriend gets mad at me for doing that.

Alright, I'm buying a new laptop pc for gaming. I have no idea what I'm doing. Is this a good PC?

WHat kind of games are you wanting to play? any first person shooter type of game will quickly eat up 1GB of ram... 2GB is better. the link says 2gb though, so that's good... I'm assuming integrated graphics, so that right there is a no-no... and the hard drive size is nice, but at 4200RPM, it will be kinda slow... so boot up times, load times will lag.

So for gaming I would have to say no.

I'm going to mostly be playing first person shooters. Mainly stuff like Half Life 2 and other stuff from Valve. Could anyone recomend a good pc under $1,000?

What about this one?

The Dell Online Store: Build Your System

all you have to do is upgrade the graphics to the 8600 and you have a decent setup.
