Usually, the game-guru's number one priority is the video card, that's why it this card is 3 times as much as a family PC video card. Gamers need the best and most fast graphics available; they need to play their games with no glitches or pixilated graphics. The Thunderbird processor was added not only because it is fast, but also inexpensive for the gamer's budget. Also, I substituted the CD-RW from the family PC, with a HP 10/100 Network Card for the "true" game-guru. Most games are multiplayer compatible, and in order to enjoy the online-gaming experience, you will need either a cable connection or DSL line. The computer above is perfect for the typical gamer. Low cost with high-end products, that's the combo for a gamer's budget.
