    Its pretty light both in the processor and the video card.

    Ideally you'd want an i7

    You'll want at least 1GB in the video card if you can get into the 400 series nvidia card or alter that will be better but a G330 would be the minimum you'd want for gaming.

    If you end up getting ATI same on memory, but the models are in the 5000 series. 59xx i believe are their top end at the moment, but a 58xx is still quite good.

    It is adequate. "Good" I'm not so sure about. You could get a better graphics card. Personally I'd go with an i7 processor...but that is just me. I'd like more memory and a bigger HD...but this is all coming from a CIS major...so I like/want only the best. This computer would be adequate for gaming but not "Good" in my opinion.

    not where i come from.

    see http://tomshardware.com/ for their most recent $1,000 box and look to see what's in it. and that's only 'reasonable', not 'good'
