I have this computer right here.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01...
Can you tell me if it is good for gaming such as crisis medium/ high settings or do i need to buy additional software for it.
Is my computer fully capable of playing those level games if i add stuff so i can have an ultimate experience. or will it lag occasionally. I want to play games so it looks realistic as possible, so I can see sweat. describe the best way how the games will run on my pc if i buy the software?

Also will my monitor prrevent me from running games to the fullest capacity. Here is the link to it.

Is it average, so, so.
On a scale of 1 to 10 how is it good for gaming?
Describe what i will see on it?

Crysis with onboard graphics..!!! You must be kidding.. Anyway, the link shows a pci-e X16 slot available so you can get a video card to play crysis and others.. 8GB RAM (if you opt for it) is plenty good.. The specs listed for the monitor link you provided makes it look good for gaming.. The hard drive is rated at 5400 RPM which will hinder performance.. Better switch to a mainstream 7200 RPM hard disk.. The samsung spinpoint F3 1TB is very good..

P.S. - The 300W power supply will limit your choices for getting a good video card..

Hate to tell you this but that computer is completely unsuited for playing any games especially on a 25in monitor. It has onboard graphics and a very low clocked Q8300. Nothing to do with software it lacks hardware.

You do have a free PCI Express slot so you could upgrade to a discreet graphics card. Anything that would play Crysis or any new games would also require a power supply upgrade. Also with mass market retailers ( HP, Dell ect. ) you can not overclock your CPU so that would be a bottleneck.

All in all I give the computer a 2.5 of 10 for gaming. Monitor looks nice though. It is a decent computer overall just not a gaming machine.
