I have a quick question- I hardly ever (almost never) use my computer to play games, other than a my daughters few disney games here and there, do I need a seperate video card. I am thinking of getting a new computer and the seem to have "onboard video" wil that be ok?

The game(s) themselves will tell you if you need a new video card. If they fail to load they will indicate that the video card is the reason. So get the new computer and try the games. Worst case is buy a new video card. Many onboard video cards will run (at lower resolutions) a lot of games that you would not expect them to run.

just as a note make sure your new pc comes with an agp or pci-express graphics slot, not just pci, that way your covered. From the games your mentioning it doesnt sound like you will but it pays to be prepared.
