The Best Computer for a Gamer

Computer games take up a lot of memory. Those who love to play games all the time would know this. In order to keep their computers from running out of memory space, they need to go out and buy chips that give them more space to store memory for their games. They could keep going out and buying memory chip after memory chip or they could buy a computer that would give them enough memory to hold all their games and than some. This is where the Dell Inspiron 1720 comes in.

PC Adviser tested the Dell Inspiron 1720 in a game test and stated that "The Dell Inspiron 1720 kicked booty in our gaming tests, producing 116 frames per second playing Far Cry at 1,024x768 resolution."
