Default New tower computer for my parents...

My parents are going to get tax refund money and will put it towards to new computer system.

I advised my dad to get the computer that has either i3 or i5. Their computer is going to be just majorly flash games and internet/email. That's all.

Their concern is, they want a new computer that can process better graphics than stuttering during the flash games on Facebook or downloadable flash games.

Do they need to have add-on graphic card or on-board video nowadays should be good?

They have Pentium 4 Gateway computer tower. And probably more than 5 years old now. They plan to buy from Best Buy or wherever with appropriate specs and price wise. Can be Newegg if possible.


I know all the hardwares and stuff, but I have been out of the computer gaming world for some time now. Look in my signature, that's how long ago I had the system like that.
