Hello everyone, my new computer parts are arriving today so that I can build my first ever gaming computer =) the problem is that I can not afford a graphics card for it for a month or so, so I need an alternitive till then. THe parts I have orderd are:
AMD phenom 955 x4
2GB 1333mhz DDR3 ram
gigabyte UD3H 890GX mb with USB 3.0 and SATA 6GB
Antec 900 case
OCZ 500watt PSU

I think that I am going to buy a HD 5770 to game on this computer with because my monitor res is only 1440 x 900 for now, and then that way I can add another if i upgrade my monitor. But for now would you recomend using the onboard graphics chip for games like WOW and for using widows media center? or shall I put in an old nvida 7200gs 256 DDR2 to play wow and media center on?

Thanks for all opinions,

The onboard graphics will be significantly better.

Even though your onboard GPU is basically an old 3450, that's still significantly, miles, faster than an old 7200GS
