Basic photo editing, music, Minecraft, a Minecraft server (for friends) stuff like that.

Then It is suitable for your needs, But I would suggest that, If you can get a dedicated graphics card, It would be for the best. About 1GB of Dedicated Graphics would be good, Because personally, I would say that integrated graphics are alright, I would still go with dedicated graphics for the long term. And also, It tends to crash less in comparison to integrated graphics. But if you cannot, then the current layout is also suitable for your needs, and would be great to work with as well, and will probably save you money! Smile

No Problem, Glad I could help you! Very Happy

Well, Its listed that it possesses a free PCI-E x16 slot (PCI Express) which most of the standard graphics card fit into, so almost any modern Graphics card will do. Here are some for you to get the idea :

1) EVGA GeForce 9800 GT 1GB

2) EVGA GeForce GT 620 1GB

it's ok, not decent. the graphics are more outdated than my 3 year old laptop's graphics. running minecraft with hd 3000 (this desktop has 2500) is rather slow and lags on low graphics every so often, and a shit ton on high graphics. as recommended by drakan you need a 1gb+ dedicated graphics card. rather than buying one and putting it in i'd recommend just getting a rebuilt one with dedicated graphics in it.

lenovo is a great brand, so i'd recommend this:

http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:category.details?current-catalog-id=12F0696583E04D86B9B79B0FEC01C087&current-category-id=4F4FC04CDD47A6D16F14B2C89E0643B7

same line, more updated, it's $700 and comes with a better processor, and more than enough graphics power. less storage and memory, but they're both faster, expect better multitasking experience and faster boot-up.

i'm not sure what your price range is, these 2 stood out:

more processing power:

better graphics:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883103411

as far as brand comparison, acer is average, and cyberpower i have no idea, mainly a custom gaming computer brand.

this one has great processing power and a good cpu:

really up to you what you choose, read the reviews and see which is appealing to you.
