    most $500 pc will run bf2 on minimum if you get a new graphix card for it i think that one is ok though
    I dont think pD's are all that great so try to look for one with an athlon(sp?) or a P4 cpu

    hmmmmm i'm not sure but i'm guessing
    $200-processor
    $100-motherboard
    $100-graphix card
    $100-harddrive
    $100-ram
    $70-case
    most other stuff you can pull of your old computer if you dont mind using old stuff

      U dont want to buy a pre-built one, do it yourslef or pay someone to do it for u. Will work out cheaper & will get u what u want.

      If u can't get what i said above done, this pc looks ok. Just needs a decent PCI-E Gfx card & your sorted.

            for this one you would also want more ram, 512mb isnt really enough

              no it wouldnt work as it has no vid card and find something with the core 2 duos pent D's are old technology.

                  actually if you get a good case then it will come with decent power supply and fans

                    Doesn't this system have on-board video? If so, you will want to buy a good VC and have them install it for you.

                    The rest of the system looks ok!

                      Can BestBuy insert an off-board graphics card for me?

                      and is it pent D>pent 4 or pent 4>pent D?

                      *god im a computer noob

                        There's a reason it's an "on board" graphics card. Don't touch Best Buy with a USB powered 10ft barge pole.


                        Pentium D > Pentium 4, however, Core 2 Duo > ALL.

                            Emachines are a no-no for gaming. Nononononononononononononononoono.

                              do oooooooooooooooooooooooo get that machine
                              it will NOT work
                              if you need help
                              PM me
                              (I do not sell systems or get any commissions - but I have been doing this
                              since 1980)
                              ps
                              my system is a refurbished for $600
                              added 2gb (total 4) and ati-x1800xl
                              so. similar system today well under $900
                              perhaps less with shopping
