Here's the computer I'm looking to buy specifically for gaming.
http://www.walmart.com/ip/CyberpowerPC-Black-Gamer-Ultra-GUA250-Desktop-PC-with-AMD-Quad-Core-FX-4100-Processor-8GB-Memory-1TB-Hard-Drive-and-Windows-7-Home-Premium-Monitor/17811825?_mm=TopOneGiantItem

Update: Considering the one above or this one now. http://www.walmart.com/ip/iBuypower-1TB-GAMER-POWER-WA534D3/15047780

I'm buying it from Walmart because I work there and get a 10% discount before anybody asks :P.

Here's the game I play's System Requirements: (Runescape)

(Minimum)Standard: 512MB RAM, 1 GHz CPU
High Def: 512MB RAM, 1.5 GHz CPU, 64-megabyte 3D Graphics card, such as Nvidia® GeForce™ 3 or above

I'll be running that game plus Foobar, Teamspeak, and Pidgen. Which don't take up much memory so I don't think they'd really matter. But I wanna make sure I won't lag before I buy this computer seeing as major areas of the game are filled with 200-300 other players at the same time which alot of the time cause lag.

- Which of these would be better for 3d gaming? (Runescape)
- Other input is also welcomed.

Between the two, the iBuyPower WA534D3 is a better option.

HD5570 > GT 520

Although both are pretty average cards for gaming, they should meet your requirements in particular.

Both of those graphics card can run the game easily but the 5570 is more powerful then the 520.
