I am a huge fan of computers under $300, there are a lot of options for you to spend your money on, I’ve done a number of reviews to give you a better idea of what you might get for your money.
Here are some gaming videos, showing you what to expect when you are using the system to game:
Gaming on an Atom processor
Gaming on a core i3
You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on a gaming system to play casual games. The graphics processors that come integrated with modern day processors are good enough for most casual gamers. I’ve been very happy with their overall performance. I look forward to testing more with these systems.
