Re: Hardware questions plus which computer should i purchase?
Okay... Graphics cards are rated on a few things; Core Clock, Memory, Memory Clock, Stream Processors, Connectors (DDR2, DDR3, GDDR5, Etc.) and many more. When your looking for a graphics card, you want a card with a high core clock. Honestly, the ATI HD 4200 is nothing. Its not even on Newegg.com (The site most people on this site order parts from). If you wanna game efficiently, build your own computer. That way you know exactly what your money is going into, and what your rig will be capable of.
As for monitors, you'll want an LCD monitors for gaming. Looking for a high refresh rate monitor such as 120 HZ. And look for big brands, such as HP, Asus, etc.
P.S. The computer you chose has a 5400 RPM HD. For gaming, thats not very good. Like I said, build your own computer.
