You have a good graphics card for being an intergrated solution, but your cpu isn't that strong. Celeron's are meant for basic tasks like surfing the web, and email. They're not made for gaming. However, if you want to see what games it could run, just go to this website. You need to install the ActiveX applet, and then it analyzes your system specs to tell you if you can play that game. The site is all good, and the applet isn't anything bad, you just need to install it so it can tell you how your comp performs.

Yea, you could run some of the new stuff on there, but at lower quality settings. They wont be blazingly fast, but the framerates should be playable.

This aint bad for under $500. No, Semprons are AMD's equivalent to the Celeron. They were both built for the average user. Go AMD 64, or Intel P4 for a gaming pc.

This pretty much the same thing, except its a HP prebuilt pc, and it has a gig of ram.
