    As the title says:

    Interl Core 2 Quad Processor Q8300
    Windows Vista 64 Bit
    8 GB Memory
    750 GB Hard Drive
    NVIDIA GeForce GT220 (1024MB)

    So are these good for gaming because I swap things in and out easily.

    Swap the graphics card and probably the psu. You don't need more than 550W for a gtx260. Also you don't need 8GB of ram - spare some money and get 4.

    Get some fucking research in your brain

    a GTS 220 fucking pulverizes a 9800GTX.

    Wait for the 5xxx Series before buying a new ATI card.

    Sorry, can't swap that out. I have to use the fucking Dell site to customize my Desktop. I was the same guy who's parents wouldn't let him buy custom.

    Have you made a build on newegg with the same specs as the one on dell and show them the difference?

    Yeah..that^ budget, new gen cards never pulverize the high end old gen. It takes about 3 generation changes for that to happen.

    Not a bad choice really

    I'd still take a gtx 250/260 or maybe even a 4850/4770 OC

    Haha, Eight gigs is fucking awesome to play around with.

    Edited:

    And yeah, make a build on Newegg and show your parents the price difference. This computer I have I made for 660 dollars and I could have bought a 2 thousand dollar computer that had WORSE specs prebuilt.

    Yes it's fun. Sometimes I clean my PC when I got bored even when it's clean or just a teeny bit dusty because you get to reassemble them.

    I take apart and reassemble computers all the time, just because I enjoy doing it.
