I don't play a LOT of games on the PC. The only game I have is Elsword, but want to play more PC games such Phantasy Star Online 2 (If it gets localized) and TERA Online for example.

The PC I have right now is roughly 12 years. And being budget conciouss, I don't want to spend like 1,000 dollars.

Not good for gaming at all. You might be able to get a gaming PC for $400. Someone else might help you with that. I can't right now though, sorry.

That PC is using a really low-end processor and integrated graphics. Based on the form factor (layout/size) of it, you won't be able to upgrade to a video card (or at best, a low profile one which won't be much better). It wouldn't be very good for gaming.

Anytime you see "Intel HD Graphics" on a PC, that means it's not for gaming.

And yes the processor is bad too.

Really? I never knew that? What about AMD? Well, what about those Alienware products? They use Intel don't they? And aren't they pretty much pure gaming PCs?

Your confusing the GPU and CPU intel CPUS are top of the line, intel GPU are usually onboard graphics cards that are junk.

Slightly better but still junk for gaming. if you want a cheap gaming desktop look for one with an Intel core i3 processor and one of these graphics cards:

AMD Radeon HD 5770
HD 6770
HD 6850
HD 6870

Nvidia GeForce GTX 460
GTX 560
GTX 560Ti

Throw 7750 and 7770 on that list.

Even though the game runs in 720p, it produces another 480p stream for the New Controller. That's like 1200p!

Was thinking that but I thought not many store prebuilts would have updated to HD 7000 yet and I didn't wanna make the list too imposing haha
