You could add in an SSD and another 4gb RAM and for under $500 have a faster PC than an expensive rig without an SSD.

Hi gregrocker,

Yes, it could be just as fast as a gaming rig if all you plan to do is surf the web and use some light graphic applications.

Gaming on the other hand. You will probably run into some problems.

Integrated graphics aren't all that great for gaming and a 220w PSU doesn't leave much room for upgrading. Also, the slim design probably will not be able to fit a video card. So your screwed if you ever want to upgrade you graphics.

However, it does say that the PC is for Home and Student and for that it will perform properly. Just don't be comparing it to a $1,500 gaming rig.

Have a great day,

Yep though little cases aren't wroth getting if gaming is in mind,
Good for the price though very narrow selection for graphic cards I got a maximum in mine and it's still rated at 300 watt minimum with a 220 watt power supply :/
Something you don't want to push or one would be in bsod land

Thanks gamers for the caveat. I am not a gamer nor are most of those I help. I should not have made that comparison.
