No. The GT520 is not a gaming card at all. That computer would play browser based flash games but not 3D games like the ones you listed.

First of all an i3-2100 is better for gaming than that CPU. The GT 520 GPU is almost completley useless only three levels above intel 3000 graphics.
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car...
Also the PSU is of unknown quality and will most likely need to be upgraded.

Personally I would just save up a bit more and build my own.

It's a $500 Walmart computer. You get what you pay for.

The FX4100 is not a good gaming CPU. It's better if you can overclock it to 4.5Ghz or higher but you will not be able to overclock with this motherboard. For roughly the same price as the FX 4100 you can get an i3 2100/2120. The i3 will not overclock at all but even at stock speeds is faster than the FX4100 overclocked to 4.5Ghz.

Read this.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-fx-pentium-a...

And this.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-o...


I see no mention of a power supply. Most likely it's something super cheap and 300 watts or less. This means you will need to upgrade the power supply before you can even think of adding a graphics card capable of playing any of the games you listed.

So you are looking at $500 for the computer + $50-$60 for a power supply and then a graphics card.

What resolution will you be playing at? At resolutions below 1920 x 1080 you will need a GTX550 Ti / HD 6770. At 1920 x 1080 a GTX560 / HD 6850 at minimum.

Your best bet is to build you own. That Walmart computer is fine for internet browsing, not so much for gaming. Also, you can not just take a piece of junk and turn it into a gamer. It's much easier to start with building a gamer. Walmart listing this computer as a gaming computer is just false advertising unless you consider pogo games and other flash based 2D games as the games they are talking about.

I Honestly would not know how to build my own computer or where to start i would like to just buy a computer for under like $650 and then if i need to put a new graphic card in it if you have time im going to post 2 more computer links and tell me what you think of them it would be much apreciated

here is one that people play wow and swtor on it out of the box but i think i would put a better gpu in it if i can without replacing power supply here it is

http://www.walmart.com/ip/CyberpowerPC-Black-Gamer-Ultr...

now i will post the other one which kind of sounds more like your talking about but costs $100 more

http://www.walmart.com/ip/CyberPower-1TB-GXi250/1667233...

If you think it would be safe and fairly easy for me not very experienced with computers to build my own just try to tell me how to do it and what to buy if possible thank you for helping me

You get SO much more for your money if you build your own. It's really easy and there are youtube videos and other great guides online including in this forum. People here at Tom's are always a great help as well. The only tool you really need is a small ( No 1 ) phillips head screwdriver.

Check this out for $650. It will max pretty much every game at 1920 x 1080.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/build-gaming-pc-ove...

Personally I would add $20 and get 8GB of RAM but that's really a small thing. I might can do even better but I don't really have the time to search newegg right now. If someone else has not helped you by tomorrow I will put you a build together. In the meantime check out some DIY build guides and see if you feel like trying to build your own. If not I will also look around at the Dell outlet and at newegg.com and see if there are any better prebuilt deals for you.

if you could look around that would be pretty nice of you i would consider building my own but i honestly dont know where to start or what to buy and i dont have much money im 15 and dont have a job i have stuff im selling to get a decent computer and i think that $650 would be pushing it i have a monitor so i just need the tower so look around if you can i will try to learn more about computers so i cand do this for myself but for now all the help i could get would be nice.

You have a monitor, correct? What Model, size or any other information you have.
Do you have a keyboard and mouse? Do you have internet access or are you messaging from a library? Or maybe from home, I don't know. That would help in knowing the price we can look for. Is there a computer shop where you live? Maybe they can build one for you better than an IBUY from WalMart. Nothing about Walmart but low cost pre-built computers often have low grade power supplies and other inexpensive parts you don't need. 1 thing you will need for sure, is the Windows Home Premium operating system (OS) $100.00.
Just quickly looking at the www.Ibuypower.com wesite I came up with this.


03:33 3/28/2012
http://www.ibuypower.com/Carts/ShoppingCarts.aspx

Intel Z68 Core i3/i5/i7 Configurator
1 x Case ( NZXT Alpha Gaming Case - Black )
1 x Processor ( Intel® Core™ i3-2120 Processor (2x 3.30GHz/3MB L3 Cache) )
1 x Processor Cooling ( Certified CPU Fan and Heatsink )
1 x Memory ( 4 GB [2 GB X2] DDR3-1600 Memory Module - Corsair or Major Brand )
1 x Video Card ( AMD Radeon HD 6790 - 1GB - Single Card )
1 x Motherboard ( ASUS P8Z68-V LX -- Lucid Virtu Technology )
1 x Power Supply ( 650 Watt - Corsair CMPSU-650TXV2 - Free Upgrade to 750 Watt Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 ($20 Savings) )
1 x Primary Hard Drive ( 2 TB HARD DRIVE -- 64M Cache, 7200rpm, 6.0Gb/s - Single Drive )
Optical Drive ( 24X Dual Format/Double Layer DVD±R/±RW + CD-R/RW Drive - Black )
1 x Operating System ( Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium + Office Starter 2010 (Includes basic versions of Word and Excel) - 64-Bit )
1 x Keyboard ( iBUYPOWER USB Keyboard )
1 x Mouse ( iBUYPOWER Internet Mouse )
0 x Monitor ( None )
0 x Speaker System ( None )
1 x Warranty ( 3 Year Standard Warranty Service )
1 x Rush Service ( Rush Service Fee (not shipping fee) - No Rush Service, Estimate Ship Out in 5~10 Business Days )
$832.00

That is their prebuilt from parts I chose. Some I didn't really choose but was forced by their menu.
For $650 you can build Tom's $650 Rig of the Month http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/build-gaming-pc-ove...
and substitute a Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 $135 after MIR
instead of the 6970 video card and add $100 for Windows software and Shazam! $650 for a gamer.

Hope that wasn't too long or confusing. You still need a keyboard and mouse.

Why are you picking computers with GT520? It's doesn't work for gaming.

Check this chart: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/gaming-graphics-card-revi...

I wouldn't go below tier 8 for PC for $500. Also, do you own a windows license? If you do, you won't have to spend $100 for it.

Well, first of all, it's bad. It has low performance, and is priced highly. Yea, of course you saw people playing games with it, it's about same as my old 5 years old 8600 GT. Well, sure, it will launch the games. But it lags. I had to set low settings. It wasn't good. Why would you want to get something little for your money when you can get a lot more?

I'll make you a build in 30 mins, if you're okay with that. You'll be able to tell me if you like it or not.

So last question: do you own windows atm or you need a new copy?

i like it yes but im assuming i would have to build it myself correct? im not very experienced with that kind of thing is there some kind of way you can have them put it together for you? because i just honestly dont trust myself that is why i wanted to buy a prebuilt one for me it would be much easier what do you think would be best for me?

I think the best for your would be watch some youtube videos about building computers, and learn which part where is meant to be. Once you know which part what is for, you can EASILY built it. Half year ago I built my first own built pc. I though it would be harder, but I was done in 40 minutes. 40 minutes! It's really easier than it looks.

Call me stupid or crazy i apreciated you helping me but i think im just going to buy a prebuilt computer i know it wont be as good but i can always put a new graphics card in it even though it will cost more but oh well i just want to ask ONE last thing i just want to know which computer will last longer and be more upgradeable and best for me i dont care about graphics i will play on low-medium settings so please just tell me which is best ok?

OK, basically all those froom Walmart are useless for gaming without a graphics card upgrade.

I found this on newegg for really close to your budget that does not need a new graphics card to play most games maxed at 720P. It's a better deal than anything from Walmart. Comes with a keyboard and mouse.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I tried for a half hour to put a Dell together that would be decent but I could not make it work. Their "gaming" computers are as bad as those at Walmart unless you pay big bucks.

i looked at it and i love it but my mom will not spend that much on her credit card because it will end up being like 800 or more with tax and shipping so please please please can you just awnser my question on which of the computers from walmart would be the best for future updates on it and to use right now THAT IS ALL I WANT TO KNOW unless you find a different computer for like 700 at most including shipping and tax OK can you please do this for me most of those computers i posted have the fx4100 which has bad reviews right now because win7 does not fully use it but when win8 comes out it will improve 50% and i can upgrade my graphics card and psu when i need to ok so just look at them and tell me which one is the best or narrow it down to 2. one of them has a intel Core i3-2100 processor which is sapposed to be pretty decent so just look at the 4 i posted earlier which one should i get please just do it i know its not the greatest and best option money wise but thats fine this is just all i can spend right now i am going to get more money eventually but i cant save up because it wouldnt matter my mom wont charge that much on her credit card so just tell me the best option out of those THANK YOU FOR ALL THE TIME YOU HAVE SPENT HELPING me.

If you absolutly HAVE to buy one of those Walmart computers then get the one with the i3 in it. When you replace the GT520 you will have to replace the power supply as well.

The one I found you on newegg with the HD6850 should let you max most games at 720p for the next several years.

Do not use capitals, it is considered to mean that you are shouting, out of the ones you posted they are all equal really and none are that good for gaming.

is this the one you said i should get?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

that one is very nice and i love it but i dont know if i can ge it depending on how much shipping and tax is could you possibly guess how much that would be? that is the one i want the most but its a little over budget but i might be able to get it as long as shipping and tax is very low. and what do you think of this computer the other guy found for me?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thank you

In my opinion the one i found for you is quite a bit better, its far cheaper, better for gaming with an added gpu. Now i know you said you dont want to but would there be any chance you could build, you could get much better performance for a better price

Its not that i cant build it i just dont want to all that much because i dont want to break somthing but i guess if somone found me every part i would need and it was cheaper and if i do build my own im going to want it to play like skyrim and stuff on at least high settings if not max would you be able to help me do this and stay under 700 but still be a good pc and last a while?

As I stated above this computer from newegg has free shipping and you pay no sales tax from newegg unless you live in California. Actual price is $729.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


With an FX 8120 and a HD6850 it will let you max almost all games at 720p until 2014 when the new consoles are released. It has a 600w power supply and as such you can upgrade the graphics card in the future and not need to upgrade the power supply too. It's the best deal if you are not going to build your own.

Of course I recommend building your own.

Edit: Sales tax in California, New Jersey and Tennessee. Everwhere they have distribution centers.

I am going to proably buy this computer but i am a little concerned because on youtube everyone seems to give it bad reviews but on new egg its almost all good reviews besides that almost every person had to push in the gpu or have them send a new one in have you heard anything about this? and if it would be a issue or not? and btw thank you sooo much for helping me find this computer

Never trust youtube people the videos are misleading. A 520 will show games on the screen but the games will be almost unplayable (just an example). When you seemingly get upset with others that are trying to help it puts other off so that you almost don't want to post something to help you out. The one on newegg is by far the best and if you can get it you will be happy.

I am not familiar with any problems people have had with this computer. The newegg reviews seem pretty good.

I have not bought a prebuilt computer since 1996 though ;)  .

You may have to reinsert the graphics card after shipping. It could very well wiggle loose in transport.

Yes, it's on sale and no I have no idea how long it will be that price. Likely until this weekend at least.
