New Computer- Was this a good buy?

Recommended Posts

So my old PoS computer broke, and i really needed a computer that didn't cost TOO much... so I went to go buy one from either Best Buy or Walmart.
Walmart had the cheapest but powerful one.
I bought the CPU only. Didn't need monitor, got 4 already.

IT's called the Acer Aspire X3400G

I just want to ask, would this computer be fit for gaming, homework, chatting, video calls etc.

info:
I went to the System info window and these are the things

Manufacturer: Acer
ModelL Aspire X3400G
Rating: 4.4 windows Experience Index
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 255 Processor 3.10 GHz
Installed Memory(RAM): 4GB
System Type: 64 bit

Extra:
1 TB Hard Drive
DvD Super-Multi
NVIDIA GeForce 9200
Multi-in-One media card reader

This cost around $500 USD total.

Was this a good buy?

It was a good buy, yes.
Would it suit all the things you asked for (gaming etc), not really.

i'm sorry im not into this "tech" stuff
What does 64 bit differ from the 32... i think ... ?
I'll probably replace the RAM later on anyways.

32 bit and 64 bit is the commands a processor will take. (unrelated to this) 64 bit can use more RAM than a 32 bit (64 bit is usually more expensive), the 32 bit processors are capped at 4GB of RAM. 64 bit can use much, much, much much, much, much much, much, much much, much, much more RAM, and if you don't take advantage of that, you're wasting your cash

The only reason it's at 4.4 is because of the Graphics Card, same here with me but my rating is at, 5.6 or something.
