Not going to game much on that 3200 video card. You will end up switching out that video card to play any serious games...and you are going to have to check the specs on the power supply as you might have to change that out too, in order to handle a more high powered video card.

I was checking on a German gamers forum. They said that it plays Crysis und COD4 well but not any of the more recent games.

Are you sure about Crysis? That game stresses out about any box...even modern games are less intensive.

I cannot really add much logic because I am not a gamer. But that is what these guys said.

Checked Dell.co.uk, what a load of rubbish, you can't even pick a graphics card never mind change the processor, all the computers i see, you get rubbish performance and a rubbish CPU, c'ept they expect me to pay £800...

Unfortunately most pre-built machines, regardless of company, will tend to cost a lot more than a self built machine.

If you really want the cheapest, most customisable machine - self built is the way to go.

If you do opt for a pre-built however, aim for one that has a better processor than video card, as video cards can be more easily updated.

The only caveat there is that a lot of the pre-bult machines have generic PSU's that potentially can affect video card upgrade options.
