    No, it's ridiculously terrible, but so are most shop bought computer's graphics cards.

    If you want to game you'll have to install a new card yourself after you've bought the computer.

    but on youtube i've seen several videos that 9200 can run crysis and cod4... so if i buy my computer with 9200 can't i run games like test drive unlimited or crysis on low quality?

    Yes, it should just about manage Crysis on minimum, but anything higher than that and it would slow to a crawl - if you want to game, playing at the very lowest settings isn't the way you want to do it...

    well if the guy is on a budget and you dont care about playing crysis the card should be ok. as far as i know the 9 series is a rehash of the 8 series with improved clock cycles.

    my 8800gt plays any game sofar that has come out but in a year or two with direct x 11 rolling out it will soon be outdated

    Handle, yes, play well, depends on the game - it's roughly on par with the 9500GT (so much better than the 9200 at least), and can run things like Call of Duty 4 reasonably well at high settings, but Crysis only at medium at best.

    Tell you what; how about you tell us the specifications of the different PCs you have your eyes on and we can see which you're best going with overall - you never know, it could work out cheaper to buy one with a poor card and then upgrade it yourself.

    Ideally don't buy a PC with such a dump graphics card, try and find one with either a GTS250, HD4670 or HD4850.

    That is an old card that I ran in my old Pentium 3 system which will give you some idea of just how old it is. It did fine for me back in the days and I certainly could play most games -- then -- quite fine. But even so it was limited by the fact that when playing the original Neverwinter Nights and a large group of baddies would attack my frame rates went way down to a crawl.

    My advice: Save up, seek wise advice, and build a good system yourself.

    I could be wrong here but I suspect you may be thinking of the Radeon 9200, not the Geforce 9200.
