Well I start off by naming a few things to look out for.
1, Recomended power supply. Make sure you have enough power.
2, Don't be fooled by large memory sizes, their usualy jsut to make people think it's really good.
3, Just because the model number is higher, doesn't mean it's better. Like the Radeon X1300 is actually much worse then the Radeon X800.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
