Solved: Graphics Card????
I'm planning on buying a Inspiron 620 with these:

Processor: Intel Pentium G630 Processor (2.70GHz,3MB L2,1066MHz)
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium
Inspiron 620 Minitower
1 TB SATA II Hard Drive (7200RPM)
4 GB DDR3 SDRAM 1333MHz (2 DIMMs)
16X DVD +/- RW Drive

specs. However, I don't know much about Graphics cards.... Is there one there, or is it all locked into the computer?

It's probably built in, but you can still add another.

It comes with one of these, which you choose when buying:

* Intel® HD Graphics
* AMD Radeon HD 6450 1GB DDR3
* NVIDIA GeForce GT 530

Even if I'm looking at it on the Dell Outlet? It shows me accessories before checkout, but it doesn't look like I have a choice of graphics.... Here is a link to the one I'm looking at:

What?

Dell sells the Inspiron 620 with one of those 3 graphics. The Intel may be built-in.

Thanks! Is that good for gaming? I would like to use shaders for certain games, but they are incompatible with:

- ATI X1200 or lower
- Graphic cards without GL_EXT_framebuffer_object support
- Graphic cards without GL_ARB_shader_objects, GL_ARB_vertex_shader and GL_ARB_fragment_shader support
- Mobile Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family (or lower; will in some cases result in the invisible world bug

You can look up each of them and then decide which one you want when you buy the machine, if they have a choice. They may only carry one of them, or two. You'd have to check with your retailer. I'm sure that the machines with NVidia or ATI cost more, too.
