    The best I can do here in the USA is about $250 for a simple Windows 7 64-bit PC With 8GB DDR3 memory

    Calm down, 8GB is useless imo. Except if you are a professional or something. 4GB is more than enough. . Actually if you want to make a "normal" pc buy a pc with more than 400-500 Euros, so that you won't need to upgrade in the near future (if u are not gamer of course).

    I'm not excited, why do I need to calm down. I mentioned 8GB (2-4GB DDR3 modules) because it would still fit in the $250 category and it woks nicely with Windows 7 64-bit. I just built a PC for this price

    Yes, but with BAD graphics card (for games) and BAD CPU (for games) :D :D

    Yes it is not a gaming PC, but the users are happy with it's on-line gaming capabilities. You can always add a low profile video card... I built my gaming PC as you see in my specs for $1200

    There is no point adding a LOW profile video card, simply because you can choose integrated! Many many many processors have integrated GPUS, like Liano ones, all the Core i-something ones etc. but everyone chooses what he wants :D

    You would be surprised at just how much a good low-profile video card can add to a lesser powerful slim-line computer

    I don't know, I just see benchmarks. Of course low-end cards have more features but you don't need money to buy a searate card with integrated ones :D
