link to graphics card:
LOL at you - 35.00 grphics card is way better than some BS on board ( with no turn off in the bios) like they have been putting up .
This system is superior to any I have seen them list.
For some one who doesn't build - changing outthe Vid card is small potatoes ( Yes I like in Idaho )
Sure you can build a better gamer - but if you don't build - this is a pretty gnarly answer to your searches.

Sure, you could use this as a gaming system - if all your games are at least 3 years old. I guess it'll run the new stuff, but at what cost?? You won't be pwning any noobs with this machine. Well, at least not until you spend the money to upgrade to and Intel CPU and an Nvidia GPU, then upgrade to 16GB or RAM. Then, maybe then will you be able to pwn noobs.
Really? Are you going for #1 troll on the planet? AMD processors and video cards are perfectly fine for gaming. Also, 16GB is way overkill. 8GB is way overkill. Even 4GB is usually overkill for gaming. 8GB will satisfy all but the most intense rendering.
@LastApeMan You'd be surprised of the performance of the integrated GPU on Intel's Sandy Bridge platform. Definitely a competitor for the low-end/HTPC market.
