A converter box will run about $100-$200......So the 8500 might be the best option......It's better than the Intel graphic's, but it won't do much better on modern games....

Found this on Ebayhttp://www.ebay.com/itm/ZOTAC-GEFORC...item2318611f91

Its about equal to a 4850 and a good bit stronger than the gt8500.....but it's used and also the Ebay factor

these Intel graphic's kind of suck lots of glitches when i got a media play open in the background it pops lil glimpse of the player into my browser and ect.
also the flash player on YouTube shows glimpse of my desktop

The first drive you listed is a external drive, it can be easily moved to a different computer, simple setup....just plug in the USB cable and go....The main drawback is access to large files will be slow

The second drive is a SATA internal drive...it's a bare drive/that usually means no cables, no screws, and sometimes it will require a format before use....It mounts inside the case, and you will need a open SATA port from the motherboard, and a SATA power plug from your power supply....Access to large files is faster, but moving the drive to a different computer is more difficult

Not really....however a external can possibly be damaged if dropped....but otherwise the life span is about the same....Which to get really depends on your needs
