honestly u should go custom since it will cost about the same but the big difference is u'll be able to overclock it which u'll regret not being able to do in the future

and how good are the graphics? I already ordered a 7600gt off of newegg, but i was just wondering how good it was anyway, what games do you play?

edit> how would i be able to disable the onboard 6150le to install the 7600gt?

would i go into bios and do it? if so, would i disable it first, and then physically install the card, boot up, and install drivers? would i get a video signal before i install the drivers?

they are pretty good for integrated. plays any battlefield with all settings at high 1024x768, and plays lots of other ones at high. some games have to be at medium or low but everything still runs smoothly. i wish i can get a new video card though...
