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?

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.

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
