I posted this question--
Okay IBUYPOWER when I get this computer (WA550B) it better have GT 730 or I will be returning it. Many other answers say it is actually a gt 630 but now your saying it is indeed a 730?
And this is the card so what is the onboard graphics, anyone?

build your own, this is a wast mine arrived broken and the tech support was no help. Had to return to the store or pay shipping cost for the company to repair they shipped with a bad power supply and did not want to just send me a new power supply.

Promise, promise is all they do.

Dear Caps,

GT730 is using a normal 2GB DDR3 Memory. No special edition and yes this card can run Syrim well on normal settings.

It only comes with windows 7. You will have to contact Ibuypower and request windows 8, and it may or may not cost extra. Or, you could just buy windows 8 and install it yourself. I would not recommend it.

Hi Ray! This computer should be able to run the Sim's game smoothly on Medium or Low resolution. On High resolution, it may shoot the FPS down a little bit, causing lag.

Hi Nick,

Determining FPS on certain games requires more information than simply the type of graphics card or computer components are installed. Generally, this PC will be able to handle minecraft and Arma 2 on high settings running at optimal level. Which basically means if your ISP network is good, than you will have no "laggy" game play.

If you have other questions, please feel free to contact our customer support at 888-462-3899, Ext: 5153.

Thank you,

Best Regards

This computer can play minecraft just fine. You should expect around 40-50fps. And for Arma 2 this computer should do just fine. When it comes to gaming it all depends on the Graphics card and resolution for the most part. You can get away with Arma at high at 720p or low at 1080p it all depends are your preference bro.

Happy Gaming
