The graphics card is pretty old at the moment (edit: about 2 years old), but it should run most things well. What's the price, if I might ask?

Is good if you ask me, you will run pretty much everything. I personally prefer win7 but it is up to you :p

Why not save some more money and go for the new i7 generation?

I wouldn't. First of all Dell aren't great and they will sometimes sell you machines with pre-used parts. Secondly, that GPU is old and while still decent you'll want to replace it within a couple of years and replacing parts in a manufactured PC is a nightmare in a lot of cases. And finally, I think it's a bit overpriced.

I suggest building it yourself. It's fun and not nearly as difficult as people think. It's also cheaper and you could build the same computer if you wanted for much less and it wouldn't be so annoying to work with it in the future. Also, when you build your own rig it really feels like it's -your- computer.

I built my own PC, what Roxas said is true.
Does feel like its my own.

Though, did save 4 years for it to get top of the line gear to be set for some years again.
If anyone wanna know specs, I can post'em.

Building yourself can be just as expensive these days. If you want a "premade" computer, I don't blame you there---but look at Asus. Dell isn't the best (And is often proprietary, which is a b***h and a half to replace parts with). Plus, what they are charging you in that hardware is robbery. I have basically the same thing but with a better graphics card... and I payed 800 flat for it. AND it has the newer gen CPU.

Basically... there's better deals out there. And speaking as someone that's built plenty of PC's---it's not always cheaper. Not by a long shot.
