    Well, im not very good knowing about graphics so, im here asking for your help.
    Im planning to buy a PC, but i will use it for gaming.
    I use to play games like: Counter Strike Source, TeamFortress2, L4D, i got L4D2 but in my actual computer i cant really play it. FPS is very low.
    I was planning to spend $100 on a Monitor and 600$ on the CPU and all that.
    Now i have $600, im getting this PC because Christmas and my birthday is a little days before Christmas so i think i can get $100 on my birthday.
    Some links I just saw:
    http://www.walmart.com/ip/Dell-iO10-0000BGA/14335608

    http://www.walmart.com/ip/HP-p6523w/14575758

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Dell+Inspiron+...487&count=1

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Dell+-+Inspiro...d=1218240956923

    http://www.walmart.com/ip/CyberPower-GLU101/14089717

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Gateway+-+Desk...p;skuId=1242965

    Some of them are around $500 because of the $100 i think i will get on my birthday. If you find something better please tell me.
    Remember that in Christmas there will be a lot of offers.
    Sorry for my bad english. And thanks ^^

    The first one is NOT an option, DO NOT EVER GET AN ALL-IN-ONE FOR GAMING, EVER, PERIOD, NEVER NEVER NEVER.

    As for the others, the graphics all suck ass except for this one.
    http://www.walmart.com/ip/CyberPower-GLU101/14089717
    This one would play games, but not as well as you may like.

    This has the same gaming capability, but is only $460.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16883113148

    For $500 you want to build your own. You could get one of these (NOT THE FIRST!) and upgrade the graphics card and PSU, but that'd cost another $150 or so to get something great.

    I suggest building your own if that's your price limit, because you're not going to find good gaming for that price.

    Yes, but I don't recommend it, it's a rip off. They're selling you liquid cooling with just a 5450 and a 2.9ghz processor, it's totally not needed.

    I read Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Gateway, HP and Dell in those links so it saves time not having to click them :3

    Maybe consider assembling your own? for $600 USD you'll get a machine that's easier to put together than legos.

    if he wants an ibuypower for that price this one would be much better.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...7-284-_-Product
    difference is it comes with an nice core i3 and an ATi 5450
    he won't be able to use linux if he ever wants to (fucking drivers) but for windows gaming it will suit him very well

    I can't believe the prices are so low. In Australia, I would have to spend AT LEAST $1000 to purchase something like that. Also today, the Australian Dollar hit parity with the US Dollar.... [​IMG]

    with the ati radeon 5450 and the gt 220, you'll have trouble running some of the new games.
    And walmart isn't the ideal place to buy a pc.
    But if you really want one of those two then go for the iBuypower.
    The gt220 is better than the radeon 5450 at gaming.

    the gt220 and hd 5450 aren't exactly powerful cards.

    for example the hd 5750 is fives times as powerful as the hd 5450.
