No offense, but the pent. III is not even in question... you don't want to have the cpu... no, go for an xp or sempron. That's what I suggest...

You can get this...

http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/sh...computer_store

It comes stock with a AMD Athlon 64 3200+, and a free RAM upgrade to 512mb. You should upgrade the video though...

Yeah, it has Integrated ATI Radeon Xpress with HyperMemory. At least it sounds better than Intel Integrated Extreme 2 or whatnot.

I think nVIDIA even released integrated video for AMD systems now. The 6100 series. I think it has 2 pipelines...ATI's Xpress has 4 pipelines, but integrated sucks either way.

Haha, well Xpress 200 isn't so bad for some games...it's alot better than Integrated Extreme Graphics 2 or whatnot.
