Went to Best Buy to get a computer that could handle video games and surfing the net. Not sure if the salesman just didn't know what he was talking about, or if this was advertised incorrectly!

The price wasn't boad for this unit, but were very disapointed with the video card, memory, etc.

You can get online with this, and it can handle lower end games with the ATI Radeon card it came with (this was upgraded after we bought it). It has both PCI-Express and AGP ports for the cards, so that is good!

The RAM was very low and was upgraded to about 1 gb, but you can't go much higher with it as the motherboard won't take it.

If you do more than a couple things, the computer tends to freeze up on you making you want to throw it out your nearest window (or into a deep pool of water)!

If your looking for a gaming computer or one that can multi-task without you wanting to put a bullet through it, this isn't the computer for you!

If your looking for a computer that can handle going online, doing some word and playing some older games then this one will work for you.
