Everything looks good except for the graphics card.... Very meh...... It DOES infact have 512mb of RAM, but the performance of the card is very outdated....

I say no to this. The jump in performance between a $700 computer and a $900 computer is fairly vast.

Save up a bit more. This machine listed will not be able to run most games well as I find my GTX 460m lagging a bit in modernized games these days.
