    I want to buy a new PC but I don't want to build it. So I ask you guys, what do you think of this PC, and it's price...

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883102622

    Is there anything I should know?

    I know you dont want to build one but for not too much more, you could build a way better rig. In my opinion, The only good parts in that comp are the ram, the processor and the harddrive. Not too fond of Nforce3 chipsets. But yet again, It does somewhat depend on what you want to use the comp for like gaming or just the basics..

    I want a PC for gaming, but I don't want to spend too much...

    This PC looked promising for only $1,000.

    That video card wont do you justice. Thr rig that I *Might* get is gonna cost about 1,000 roughly and its a hell of a lot better then that. I'll add up the base prices of everything and see how much it comes out to.

    EDIT: Adding up all the prices came out to $996.98 minus shipping costs and taxes. With all the shipping costs on each prduct added in it came out to $1019.46 minus taxes.

    The GeForce FX 5200 128MB can't be that bad... I mean, I will be able to play games like Doom 3 and UT2004 with it, right?

    Nope. Dunno about UT2004... but im sure as hell it wont run Doom 3.

    Shit, I still havent added a CD drive into that total for everything... By rights it should come out to about 1030 or more

    How the hell does the FX5200 get lower scores than the GeForce 4 MX480?

    Dude, Its a POS!! Im tellin you straight up cuz ive got one My fps isn CSS is around 50 max... It can run like basic games like max payne and crappy like that... I could barely play NFSU2 on it I light up the tires and it would lag and almost freeze Its definately not a card you want for gaming. Id suggest a high end ATI 9800 or higher But when it comes to video card it depends of you tastes between nvidia's or ati's
