Ahoy!
Anyway to cut to the chase...

I'm buying a new PC, that's gonna be pretty much for heavy gaming. I know shared graphics is kind of like borrowing memory from the main PC but does do you guys think this is too much? What effect will it have?

* AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core
* 2048 MB memory (RAM)
* 831 MB shared graphics
* 320 GB Storage

Sorry its a pretty nooby question.

You really need a decent graphics card if you are going for "heavy gaming".

Sorry I can't offer suggestions; I don't know much about graphics cards.

core 2 duo
2g ram
8800gt or 8800gtx
shared graphics = slideshow and are below minimum system requirements for new games.

old games before 2000 not a problem still dont expect high/ultra qaulity

believe me a graphics card is needed especialy ,if as your saying its gameing intensive as the card will carry most of the burden and free up ram and compute cycles

um i think it should be fine but i would talk to whomever your buying from about grapics weather dell or acer or hp
