NVIDIA GeForce G405 (1 GB) What graphics card is this?
I'm looking to buy this computer:

http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/ie/en/ho/WF06b/12454-12454-3329740-64546-64546-5035348-5053346.html

And I don't recognise the graphics cards and can't find anything about it on the net.

Any help? Will it be useless?

Note: i'm not looking for a crysis machine.... just maybe some BF2 and MMOs

It's probably like the GeForce 205 ( http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_geforce_205_us.html ) but with DX11 support, basically the slowest Nvidia card in the lineup and totally useless for games. The minimum for decent gaming would be a GT 440, GTS 450 or higher recommended. However, with those branded PCs it may not be as simple as replacing just the graphics card. You have to make sure the power supply unit can handle the new card since the PSUs included in branded PCs are usually not powerful enough for gaming cards. You also should check whether there's enough space inside the case for the new card if you're going to replace it.

Ah so it's not something they will sell separately hence the no-find on the internet.
Thanks for your help
think it will run BF2 for now? Given it's 5/6 years old now

It can probably handle it as long as you keep the resolution and settings low, assuming the spec for the G405 is similar to the GeForce 205.

I wouldn't be surprised if that card has worse performance than the integrated GFX on sandy bridge processors.
JC2-heck no.
GTAIV-heck no.
Sims 3-yes, low-ish settings.
COD-which game? The system requirements you have do not match up with the original COD.

Have you already bought this?
