That is where im looking to get it.. the only thing is im nervous because people said it died on them, and i dont want that to happen to me after a few months of getting it. Thanks for replies. If you dont want to go to the site, heres the specs and name of the computer:


iBUYPOWER Gamer Power 562D3 Desktop PC
AMD FX-Series FX-4100(3.6GHz)
8GB DDR3
500GB HDD Capacity
AMD Radeon HD 6670
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Price is 569.99$

Really hope this is ok, and i rarely download anything other then some wow things, so i think 500GB HD is just fine for me;)

Hello LC;

That computer's for gaming right?
That FX-4100 isn't much to brag about.

What games are you wanting to run?

Games like WoW and Runescape should run pretty good on high settings.
What resolution is your monitor?

It makes a pretty big difference.

Here is a HD 6670 running WoW on different resolutions:

The settings were on Ultra but you can see what increasing resolutions do the FPS.

What's the make and model of that 22" TV?
It might be 1280x720.

Yeah, thats 1080P.... so the native resolution is 1920x1080.
That's a lot of work for a FX-4100 and HD 6670.
You'll probably need to settle for medium graphics and maybe even use a lower resolution to get smooth, fluid FPS.

I'm mostly worried about that FX-4100. Before you jump in... ask around some of the WoW players forums and see if people with that APU are happy with it.

You could try both of course. The monitor is 1440 x 900 resolution. Use which ever one you like the best.
There is always some tweaking you can do to find a good balance between performance and good looking graphics.

well, i really dont want to use the tv screen as i use it to play on my xbox.. it would just be a annoyance to setup and moving it. Do you think you can find a good size Monitor(16-18.5") thats a wide screen(what ever it is :p ) thats 100$ and under?
