Hahaha, don't listen to the guys at BestBuy, they have no idea what they're talking about. What kind of gaming are you into, you have a few of your games you'll be playing?

Hmm, 3ds max will take a bit of ram, sims 2 and such shouldddd play on that integrated video, but it won't be the best. It only has 512mb ram, I'd aim for 1gb

The GPU is intergrated, you wont get a good FPS with that!

you could build something better than that E-Machines for around $700.
Throw in a X2 3800+, NVIDIA 7600GT, you can sure building something for that price no problem

Is your budget $700 including the monitor, speakers, keyboard, and what other accessories you need? Or are you going to use your current ones? And do you have an OS?

Do you want AMD or Intel?
