    Choosing a new gaming computer, with little budget

    I currently have a Toshiba A215. It's lived quite some time, and has done me well, but the graphics are slowly dying, almost dead :3

    So i'm looking to buy a new computer. It can be any type (i.e a laptop, an "all-in-one", or just the desktop)

    But i'm only willing to spend 500$ max. Maybe a little more if truly necessary.

    I've been looking on sites like New-egg, microcenter, best buy, amazon... Stuff like that. And the best prices i can find are on MicroCenter.




    Anyways, (really not asking a question here, just rambling ) What websites do you suggest? And do you have any suggestions on computers? I'd like to have a "gaming computer" but i understand that a 500$ budget isn't going to get me there. So i'd just like a decent graphics card preferably non-intergrated (I'd like to be able to change it later on.) But if that's not possible, i guess i'll go with integrated ;p



    TL;DR (I tend to ramble )
    • Intergrated graphics
    • Decent graphics
    • Website Suggestions?
    • 500$ limit!



    Thank you to anyone who helps

    Fine
    I would honestly go with a low-end H61 build or something as CRaziY suggested, but I would really try to get a better CPU/GFX card. I would recommend you lurk Slickdeals for a while to see if you can get any decent cards / cpus cheap

    It's funny how an Intel Pentium chip beats a lot of AMD's Phenom chips in gaming.
