Intel x4500 integrated graphics

I plan on buying the hp p6240f that has 8GB PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM memory.Is this good enough for gaming. This is a desk top format and is a package deal that comes with a 20 inch hd monitor.

  1. Not a chance. Take a look at this review, you see that the G45 does miserably in all of the gaming tests

    Even a cheap 4650 would be a massive improvement in gaming performance over an Intel IGP.
  2. I am trying to upgrade my current desk top without breaking the bank. I have an hp windows xp 120 gb with a 15 inch lcd that is burning out. I want to stay around $800 and this package fits the bill as a 3 day cyber special at hp.
  3. For the price of that HP, why not build your own budget gaming rig?
  4. I was also looking into Costco's desktop which is currently offering the ZT Affinity 7337Xa Desktop
    Phenom II X4 945 3.0GHz
    Microsoft® Windows 7 Home Premium
    19-in-1 Media Card Reader
    Gigabit Ethernet LAN
    Integrated ATI Radeon™ HD 3100 graphics with DVI

    Does anyone know about ZT or the ATI Radeon HD 3100 graphics which is also an integrated graphics card?
  5. ??? If you spend more then $400 on a PC and still have integrated graphics, then you are doing something wrong. You can easily build a mid-range C2D machine w/ a 9800 GT for around $600 or so...

    Not really sure why you're sticking with integrated graphics. At any rate, they have motherboards with built-in Geforce 9300 graphics chip for around $100.

    I think you might be setting yourself up if you go with Intel GMA 4500 or ATI HD 3100.
  7. It is not that I am looking for an integrated graphics card, it is what is being offered as a package deal.

    It sounds like a package deal for someone who has no interest in playing 3D games. I play 3D games so I would refuse that deal. Unless of course the price was lower than what I could build and it had a decent PSU and I had extra cash to plug in at least an HD 4850.
