I've been having issues with my old desktop computer. It's about nine or ten years old, it runs slow, and I think it had a vew bad viruses on it at some point, that my father must have dealt with.

I'd prefer anything but a Dell. I haven't had any luck with Dell computers. To be honest, I'm getting quite sick of them. I'm looking for a computer that has a 2.0Ghz processor, at least 2 GB of memory, at least 500 MB of disc space, and GeForce 6/Radeon X1000 graphics card, or higher.

I need the cheapest one possible. I found an Acer Aspire at Walmart for $398. It has 4 GB of memory, a 1 TB hard drive, and GeForce 6. I'm pretty sure it meets my requirements. Does it?

I don't need a computer that comes with speakers or a monitor. I just need the computer itself, and preferrably a keyboard and a mouse. I have a LED tv I can plug it into, I believe, and if not, I have a monitor available. I can buy separate speakers, if I decide I want them. I doubt I will though.

I mainly want a computer that can play games. Amnesia: The Dark Descent is the one game I want to play most (the requirements listed above are for this game, actually). If I can play this game, finally, I'll be happy.

If anyone knows of any other cheap-ish computers that meet my requirements, or if anyone can tell me if the Aspire can play Amnesia, it'll be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
YOU. Yeah, you. Have you played Amnesia: The Dark Descent? Do you know of a moderately priced or a cheap computer that is capable at playing it? Message me! Please and thank you. :D

A budget is needed to determine the right computer.

$500 or less, would be best. I just need the actual computer, keyboard, and mouse. Speakers and monitor don't need to be included.

Do you know of any stores that might sell that computer?

Also, this is the computer I was looking at. Would it be able to play the game too?
