This is a DESKTOP, you can put in your own GFX card into it.

Integrated graphics on a desktop isn't your only choice. Out of the box, no, it won't be a gamer. But buy your own, and you're set.

The dell you're buying has integrated graphics as well.

Update: I didint buy it this friday which is today im going to buy a desktop Sunday. And Shaynk the dell desktop i was buying wasent integrated... I even checked. It had some AMT video card idk some random Numbers after that. But the reason im getting it sunday now is because this is when Staples price's, go down for a special. So sunday when i get my desktop. And im preety sure im going to check the videocard to make sure its not integrated. Than after that i will tell you guys the model of the desktop i have botten. So i might not be getting a Dell Desktop but instead an HP Desktop ^_^. Ill tell you guys later sunday. and see how everything turn's out. BTW i need a lil advice so a desktop with an integrated video card means you cant upgrade it or replace it or anything?

No integrated graphics doesn't stop you from upgrading with a new card, so long as there is an open pci express slot. This is usually the case.

Hmm, can't find the PC on Staples.com? Would like to know what it is.

What is your exact model number? Should be on front bottom of your case.

That video card is onboard, but how much video memory does it have? You just might have bought another crappy desktop. But at least now you can easily upgrade.

Since youll be upgrading the gpu anyways you likely would have been better with the dell. Take away the fact that the onboard graphics isn't terrible, the processor by itself is pretty bad.

So you're looking at 600 plus after you put a proper gpu in it, oh yeah I could beat that price. Well building it atleast I dont really keep up on oem manufacturer pricing:/
