We are moderate gamers---Age of Empires, Farm Frenzy, Zoo Tycoon, Sim City, those type of games

I also do QuickBooks, Quicken, Works, photo scape, tons of genealogy, web surfing, email, facebook games, etc

I am wondering about

Inspiron 580 w/ Core i5-750 2.66GHz, 4GB, 1TB, DVD+-RW, ATI Radeon HD 5450 1GB DDR3, Dell 19 in 1 Media Card Reader, Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Inspiron 580 w/ Intel Core i3-540 3.06GHz, 4GB DDR3, 500GB HDD, DVD+-RW, 512MB NVIDIA GeForce G310, Dell 19 in 1 Media Card Reader, Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

I know I want 3-4GB Ram, I don't need a huge hard drive. I had a Inspiron 530 for 4 years until the other day when it just quit working.......grrrrrrrrrrrr and before that a Dimension E510 which is still running, just very slowwwwwwww

I have an HP2009m monitor that I bought about 8 months ago.

I do not know which is the better graphics card, that will last, play the games not freeze up the system nor get to hot....

I would Recommend getting the 1st one since the i-5 750 is a quad core and that the 5450 is directx11 compliant.

Do you know what your current graphics card is.

My inspiron 530 --- was NVDIA GEforce 8300 and either a 128 or 512 MB, isn't that a dedicated rather than integrated card? What my system said was 512MBGeForce 8300GS Verison integrated RAMDAC,

I am now looking at the Studio XPS 7100
* Studio XPS 7100 Desktop
* Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1035T (2.6GHz)
* Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium
* 1 TB SATA II Hard Drive (7200RPM)
* 4 GB DDR3 SDRAM 1333MHz (2 DIMMs)
* 16X DVD +/- RW w/dbl layer write capability
* 1 GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5450
