    So I'm getting a desktop.

    Most likely getting a desktop tomorrow, but I have some limitations: It's limited to the local Radio Shack or Wal Mart. I need to know which one you people would recommend, if you don't mind.

    What I need:
    Able to play Minecraft and basic Flash games. I know this sounds simple, but my current laptop just can't handle it.
    It has to be able to run art programs like Adobe Flash or Photoshop.
    Having a decent video card/RAM would probably help.

    My Choices: I know they're all kind of shitty, most likely, but I don't really need much.

    I'm thinking the third option is the best, but I'd just like other people's input.

    The third option is the best choice; I'd go with the third one (P6710F) because it has the best choice of graphics, even if it is integrated, along with the most memory to start off with, and a Quad-core processor to boot. It also has the biggest upgrade potential for memory (16 Gb, compared to 8 Gb for the 1st option).

    The 4th one from Wal-Mart would be okay if you can't afford the P6710F, the only difference between them is a Quad-core processor vs. a dual core, and a $100 price difference.

    What about the fourth option? I don't know if you saw it because I just edited it in there. ><

    And as far as the third option goes: Well, that just goes to show how much my knowledge of computers sucks.

    E: Wait, I thought the P6710F was the third option? D:
