    It probably has an integrated GPU, which will provide you with nothing but poor graphics. Update the GPU, RAM, and invest in a real sound card and you will have a decent rig.

    If anyone remembers me ranting about my c:/ crashing.. well.. I'm not sure about getting just 15 gb of data new since I'll probably be getting but I will be getting a GeForce 9200 (that's what he said) and one of these sound cards on clearance whose name escapes me (I think it's Max something). But I still have to wait even longer to get it back --; Blah.

    EDIT: Oh yeah.. quote, "Dude.. you're getting a pos."
