>>so the graphics card is crappy?
yes they are.  The FX 5200 series are just not very good cards.  I just bought a very good card, FX 5900XT for $178 at newegg.com  just another option for you.  However, that card was on sale.  There are several cards that are around the same speed and price:

$150-$200
Radeon 9600XT
FX 5700 Ultra



>>dude , its a dell
No one can compete with dell on their price or customer service.


How much is that configuration from DELL?   Does it come with monitor, keyboard, mouse. and speakers?
