Will this run Aion...well?

I am looking at buying this Pc and I want to know can I run this game fine with it? I bought the game and Don't have what I need and a graduation gift I get is to chose my comp. so for $400 am I looking at a decent game play mid to high settings? I am on my own internet so that is not what I am woried about. I want it to run well right out of the box. Hopefully no card needed for 1 or so years. so like the title says, can i run Aion well?

  3. your second choice will play Aion with no problems

    Minimum
    System requirements
    Pentium 4 2.8GHz, AMD Athlon 2800+; 1 GB RAM; GeForce 6600, Radeon X1550; Hard Drive 15GB; DirectX 9.0c(2008,6)

    Recommended:

    Pentium Dual Core, AMD Athlon 64 X2; 2 GB RAM; GeForce 7600, Radeon HD 2600; Hard Drive 15GB; DirectX 9.0c(2008,6)
  4. Better, but not only will you be looking to upgrade video in a year, the psu will have to be upgraded, not always a easy thing on an HP.

    2 memory slots, filled with 1GB+2GB, not very expandable.

    320GB HDD on the small size, atleast you can add more.

    Athlon II X2, check that the motherboard can be upgrade to run a Phenom II, just because its a AM3, its an OEM board made for HP.

    Better machines out there for HP's price.

  6. Best answer
    I like the computer, not the vid card, but it's a good deal, the second choice was ok before, just people here think everyone wants all the latest and greatest, I use tech that is a year or 2 old, bought cheap(but new) and get a few years out of it, then start the process over again

    well thank you. this is my final choice but in your honest opinion whats wrong with the card? do note the card I have now is a Ati Radeon 9550/x1050 series and a AGP ATI Radeon Hd 3650 open boxed that my pc is so screwed up it can't handle it.
