That computer is horrible. Intel Cards are total shit.

I would suggest shopping on Newegg or TigerDirect. Buying a prebuilt computer is a total rip off. Especially when you could build it yourself for half the price.

Buy parts, create a custom, works better than all those pre-made ones.

I started with a Compaq Presiaro 061, shittest computer ever.

Its Windows XP SP2, upgraded to 3. I bought it an extra 2GB RAM, and a 9400GT Graphics Card, so?

I was hoping something with around 4GB RAM and a 1024MB Graphics card.
If you're going for the Desktop, i suggest you looking at ATI's graphic card: HD4870 i believe it's called, it's supposed to be running Crysis on an Average of 30-40 FPS. (on max'd graphics).

PIC:

I have the Sapphire 1GB of this, it does indeed play Crysis maxed out with 30-40 FPS, all the games i have are set to max graphics and theres no lag at all, my computer cost around £540, if you want i could send you the list of parts i bought, along with links to the cheapest stores selling them.
