I just want to game on this computer and i though i mught be able to save money buy buying from a store. I want to be able to have the graphics high, but i might be able to give a little bit on FEAR or games really high like that. I might also plan on buying a different case and installing it into that becasue i dont like the case that much. So is it good?
You will need a video card.
Xpress 200 is not on the hardware support list for BF2.
HL2 should play maybee not well.
Fear I dont know.
First integrated video will never offer High setting for video games.
Second you talk about switching cases, HP designes there CD and DVD drives a little smaller for there shelf computers so new ones might be required for new case. Same goes for power supply mounting hole will probably not line up and you would also lose the memory card reader.
it all depends on what kind of expansion slots you have in your computer, but yes all you have to do is uninstall the Intel graphics and then shut off your computer install the new video card in the appropriate slot and then start your computer and install the drivers for the new video card.
My work has bought over 10 HP's in the past two years, and they are good working computers for the money. Any (atx) power supply will fit in the case. The main problem you will face is that HP cases are micro-atx. meaning the smaller then other cases. And if you do get a larger PS try not to get one thats to long or else it will give you no room to work. So if you do upgraded i would shoot for getting a modular power supply.
And also its mostly what type of parts are in the computer will determine how big the PS is. If you go with a more powerfull computer (EX. core 2 duo, 2 gigs DDR2.) it will have out a 450 watt PS. But i would always check to make sure.
