Like your processor speed, amount of memory, etc. Assuming you didn't build it yourself, a model number would be fine (like Dell Dimension E500 or Gateway FX510).

It looks like his PC just skids by the minimum requirements, so it SHOULD run. Turn down all the graphics settings to the lowest they can go. You're on Windows XP, correct?
