1GB GPU? Yeah you'll run smoothly for pretty much anything you do aside from massive fleet battles but that would have more to do with internet speed then.

It will run EVE just fine. It will do poorly for anything more demanding though, check out this review for example, the 5450 is second from the bottom in every single test: http://www.techspot.com/review/244-ati-radeon-hd-5450/page4.html

Since it says DDR instead of DDR2 or DDR3 it's probably crap unfortunately.

Looks more like he/she/it just copy-pasted the specs without removing all the completely irrelevant bits.

Thanks guys thats fair enough for me im not gonna throw computer games like mass effect or call of duty or even grand theft auto.

The main purpose is mainly gonna be to play eveonline or WOW or even runescape probly never runescape again i got bored with playing that game so chances are im probly just stick with eveonline I've come to love this MMORPG than anything else.

And not only that why would I buy mass effect or anything like that on a pc I mean I mostly buy games like that for my gaming console 10 out 10 times.

Im gonna say thats DDR3 cause the ATI HD series card usually are'nt crap in fact they almost pair up with NINVIDEA 9800 GT i've heard their nosier and well thats the perfect card for DELL desktop anyway.

my desktop will be an ASUS tower also from what i've heard ASUS towers don't run hotter than DELLS do DELLS i've heard tend to run a little hotter and heat up a little bit more to.

To play EVE all you need is card that does Shader Model 3 (also often called Pixel Shader 3). Here is list of cards and the Pixel Shader they have: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pixel_shader#Compatibility

In the table on that website you want PS 3 as a minimum, if you afford one with higher PS, all power to you.

When CCP dropped the old client and made Premium client the standard, I had to buy another video card because none of my ATI cards had Pixel Shader 3. I went the cheapest route I could find, got used nVidia 8400GS from eBay delivered to my door for 15 bucks.

now i also could've went with their I3 tower but the asuss already has most of what i want already in there so the asuss tower is porbly gonna be my final decsion. and if you ask for the 2 year standard warranty 1150$ most likely.
