Im not a big gamer at all im just not to fond of intergrated graphics..the computer is basically used for movies and music..i may play a small game of minsweeper but that's about it lol..my pc specs are as followed

Western Digital WD1200AAJS 120GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive

should be right were you need it. however you could get a 40 gs for half that but this is good just in case you decide to start playing games soon.

2 is MORE than enough if your really want to get vista that would be good for dx 10 and that would justify 2 more gigs of ram on top of that and the video card is almost perfect for that and will still run those game very well.
