Arrow Would this computer work for gaming?

Hey everyone. I am looking for a computer that is good for gaming but also somewhat affordable at the same time. A friend suggested the computer linked below. Let me know if that is a good suggestion. THanks!

Is this computer good for gaming?

says nothing about a video card so I assume it uses onboard video...therefore it would basically suck arse for gaming. You can build a hell of a lot better computer for that price.

Depends on what type of games you want to play.

Nothing wrong with it being a dell. But no that has onboard so that particular one will be horrible.
