    So I just ordered this computer, I plan to play Skyrim, TF2, Minecraft, Half Life, and Garry's Mod.
    Do you think it could handle these games? Not on all highest settings but at least Moderate for most of them, low to Medium for Skyrim.

    P.S I'm on a budget so please don't make me feel too bad about this new computer :p

    thanks :)

    Which video card are you opting to get with it? The default Intel HD 2500 integrated graphics are not likely sufficient for Skyrim beyond low settings, and may even struggle with that.

    Any of the other cards, non of which are considered a gaming graphics card and are odd-ball custom OEM cards designed for the weak power supply in the computer, would likely give you the low to medium for Skyrim.

    All the rest of games are less demanding.

    According to the HP shopping site, it looks like you selected an "everyday computing" model over a more expensive "gaming" model.
