    Anything that uses a Celeron is considered, at best, an entry-level PC.

    In addition, integrated graphics, especially Intel, are basically for 2-D work, not for 3D.

    Any decent gaming machine will be multi-core (6 cores if not 4), and have an add-on card that supports DirectX 11, and (if you can afford it), either multiple video cards or single video card with multiple GPUs.

    Not in my opinion. I recently saw some HP machines that were well under $1000 that had multi-core processors and decent video cards.

    But be aware, Gaming on PCs takes a LOT of resources, so if you're looking to build a real Gaming PC for under $1000, unless you find a really good deal, that's not going to happen.

    For example, some of the new ATI HD 69xx series cards are $600 by themselves. Multi-core, high-end CPUs typically run $300 or so. So, you're already nearly at $1000 and all you have is a video card and CPU.

    So basically, $1000 will buy you a good multimedia machine, but only a basic Gaming machine.
