Good morning guys! i have a labtop that i used to use to play heroes of newearth and recently the graphic card fried on me and therefore i would rather invest in a new desktop then fix my labtop. i am really on a budget and the specs for the game that are recommended are these and i would like to play the game on pretty good settings.

these are the recommended specs:
Recommended:
Processor - 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo / AMD 3500+ or faster
RAM - 1.5GB or higher
Video Card - 256MB Geforce 7800+ or Radeon X1900+
Network Connection Required (Broadband)

i was looking at this computer from futureshop cause i live in canada and here is the link.

If you tell us what your budget actually is for the build, it will be much easier for someone to help you out.

Based on your link, I'm assuming you are looking for something pre-assembled as opposed to building your own? If so, do you need a monitor, keyboard or mouse? Or are you just looking for the tower? Do you need word processing software, such as MS Office, or will that be a separate purchase?

EDIT-> Also, what will you be using the computer for, other than the game you listed above? Do you have a large media library? Will you be wanting to play other games in the future, or just the one you listed?

The computer you linked to does exceed the specs required by the game, so there should be no problem there. I'm assuming that the game supports Windows 7?

You could build one that would be much faster, but you would be pushing the limit of your budget. Let me look around and see if I can find something already assembled that would be faster than the one you have linked to in your first post.
