Noob Desktop Question

Hey guys,

I've been considering purchasing a desktop for a while and D3 put me over the edge.

I am considering this model: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/HP+-+Pavilion+Slimline+Desktop+-+6GB+Memory+-+750GB+Hard+Drive/4957806.p?id=1218583707246&skuId=4957806&st=4957806&cp=1&lp=1

However, I am not certain what kind of video card it has, if any (I'm not 100% knowledgeable on this stuff). I'm assuming I will have to buy a card and upgrade it. Am I assuming correctly?

Thanks for the help in advance.

The site lists "Intel HD" for the graphics spec., so that means integrated video (the video processing is built into the system board). This will not be good enough for games, so your assumption about needing to add a video card is correct.
You should make sure that you can even add a graphics card to a computer before you get it. Computers like this often have power supplies that are only adequate for the system as is; if you add a power hungry video card the system may not be able to power it.

Thanks, I guess I'll have to go back to the drawing board.
