Well, the processor stayed the same, which is interesting, but the next one up is like Intel Core i5 of i3 so you won't need that. 4GB's not bad, 750GB HDD is nice also. I would give you a 9/10 if you have Vista or Windows 7 you should run the performance thing found in your System Properties.

Well thank you for taking time. Please rate the graphic card I'm going buy. Also, is there any good graphic card in that price? Please suggest.

I actually got it like you will have it and it's okay like it is. But don't forget, you need 64bit to use ur full RAM. All in all i guess it's a good investment.
I don't think you'd need a better graphic card, i got the same and it works well, as long as you don't want to run all the new games on highest graphic-stuff.

Hey, thanks for the suggestion but don't you think that video memory is lower? Does video memory actually matters?

Does Video RAM Matter? Hell Yes! Say you want to play GTA:IV well, you cant play it on a stock computer. You need a better graphics card, the whole point, MORE RAM!

You do not need more then 256 megs of video ram in your graphic card, if your soul purpose of using it is gaming.
And GTA IV is graphically very undemanding, it just needs a beast of a processor

Well this is going to be the last time I complain about my internet connection here, I promise. So I'm going to try and put everything I can think of to, hopefully, allow you to help me figure out what the problem is.

Recently, my internet connection has been screwing up, as in disconnecting randomly by itself every 5-10 minutes, making everything I do on the internet, from streaming music to playing games, horrific. When this happens, I am still connected to the actual network (All bars), and I don't stay disconnected for long. Some times less than a second. Though, it's enough to make me crash from servers and music stop streaming. I've searched/asked everywhere I can think of, and everyone has the same answer: Reset your wireless network. This I have done multiple times, no effect. I have a desktop computer connected to a modem, connected to a router. Both the laptop and desktop are experiencing the problems with the internet, so I assumed the problem was either the router/modem. All drivers for both are up-to-date and fully working (on both computers).

So far, I've tried:
- Resetting my network
- Resetting LAN cards
- Updating all drivers for the network
- Re-installing network cards

My ISP (Cox Communications) told me that everything seemed fine, and they didn't know what is causing the problem. I'm at a complete dead end. I truly need help, simply because I want to start playing SA:MP again without frequently crashing, and simply want to watch ******* videos. Please, ANY thing you can think of that might be able to help, I will try.

And please, if you tell me to reset something about the computers, please specify which one (e.g. The desktop / laptop / both).

Thanks in advance.
