# AMD 3400XP 64 BIT Processor
# 2GHz Clock-Speed
# 800Mhz Front Side Bus
# 1024Kb Cache
# Windows XP Home Edition
# 512Mb Ram
# 200Gb SerHard Disk
# DVD-ReWriter
# 19" TFT
# One Years Free Onsite Warranty

Looking at the specifications Their is only one optical drive, it does not give any information on the monitor, no graphics card mentioned so probably onboard graphics which could use 128 mb of the 512 mb installed.
So probablly no good if you want to play the latest games.

Also it does not say if it is a 734 or a 939 motherboard. 939 and winchester core is the way to go.

I would get their spec and use it to ring Carrera
get them to quote you for their spec on a machine at the same price - I reckon you will walk away with a better machine all round.
