Hello, lets just start off saying I'm pure crap for when it comes to computer specs, so I've been wondering if this was an okay computer to purchase, for gaming at least? hehe.

I'm also on a budget, so would explain as to why its a HP. Please tell me what you think. :)

I agree with building one, as you can usually get better for cheaper, plus you can choose all your own specs. Plus I really enjoy building computers myself. However, the one you linked should be just fine, especially if you're mainly using it to play games like WoW.

The Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6530D graphics card is integrated directly into the mother board, which means that it will most likely be terribad for gaming. I recommend looking around for a computer with a real graphics card.

Most of the companies that make prebuilt computers try to pawn off these awful integrated cards thinking that people will overlook this kind of thing. You could look around for one with a better card, but it might be hard to find on a budget. I recommend building your own computer, it's super easy and there's no chance of being ripped off by misleading labels and hyperbolic advertising.

My advice is go to tiger direct (or a similar site) and piece together what you want... dont buy a preconfigured machine.
