    Here is the graphics card "Intel X4500 Graphics"

    i don't know whether its good or not but in the review it said "Ideal gaming entry machine with great looks and performance" But is that true?

    That's intel onboard graphics. Onboard graphics have come a long way but still no where near "good" for gaming I'm afraid :(

    there's no such thing as an ideal gaming "entry" machine. True gaming machines are high end with dedicated graphics and fast processors.

    gaming entry machine is an oxymoron.

    well if you are up for building your own, This will be a good machine for high detail on most games at 1680 x 1050. The total is about 470 quid, leaves room for a keyboard and monitor if you need Them... I think it's a pretty good entry level gamer...:p(Tedster)
