Re: Can this comp play New games?
Not really... your mobo and CPU is laggish
If you'd use these:
ASUS P4C800-E OR P4P800-SE and a P4 3GHz CPU, you'll be OK
your other one supports a 533MHZ FSB while this one is an 800MHZ so does the P4 CPU.
a 40GB?!? Well, if you want, try at least a 80GB or for more speed, a 74GB 10,000RPM...or if the budget gives it, try a 100GB 15,000RPM
