I know this sounds really stupid, and im slightly ashamed for not knowing myself, however, Im looking at getting rid of the junk im using at the moment and getting a digital pc, the SONY XL100 to be specific, but im unsure whether i can still play games on it. Can anyone help please?
Thanks

Yes you will be able to game on it...just bear in mind the PentiumD at 2.8GHz will only have the same performance as a single core 2.8GHz P4 on most games.

By no means bad but a little below the recommended speed for a lot of up to date games.

Likewise the fitted nVidia 6600 graphics.....this will run most up to date games but at moderate settings.

Superb.. Thanks a lot for clearing that up for me. Is it worth checking out various sites or are places such as PC World etc.. reasonably priced?

I'd have a look at some of the current reviews of PCs in your price range - Sonys look nice but they tend to be a little underspecced for the price. You can probably get something that will do better with games for the same sort of money.

Cheers Kate, will do .. Im liking the idea of the 32" flatscreen monitor and the all in one media centre, but I must admit, I was a bit hesitant with it being Sony..

Keep posting, its good to get a wide range of opinions, and its not just me being too lazy to do the research(promise). Ive been umming and arghing for about two months now, I'm a bit worried I'll panic buy and get something I dont want and dont need.

The only other reservation I have about this type of pc is upgrade-ability.

If it doesn't meet your needs a bit further down the line,you need to know if it has a strong enough power supply and standard fitments for graphics cards etc.

Maybe a standard ATX tower is,as Kate B is suggesting a better option.
