A friend of mine just bought the following system from HP and he says it is running slower than he wishes. I suggested he upgrade to a better graphics card (recommended the Nvidia 7900GS or 7900GT).
If you have some suggestions on how to pump this suckert up for about $120 or less I would really appreciate it.
