I have had a Dell Inspiron 518 since April of the year 2008. I originally bought it to play some low-middle level PC games such as the popular Counter-Strike Series including Counter-Strike 1.6 and Counter Strike: Source and it ran both to a playable point. The problem was with Counter-Strike:Source. It was not a enormous issue but I did experience generally slow loading times and a mediocre FPS while in-game. With that aside - this is not a gaming computer. It will play older games but don't expect a power-house. I would suggest this computer if you are looking for a good general home PC for Internet Browsing, Emailing, Word Processing, and the occasional Browser Based Game such as those found on Facebook. I did a lot of Graphic Design and Video editing and must admit I experience numerous moments of lag and slow down. This computer will last a long time if you keep it clean and updated with it's drivers.
