Re: is my computer getting old? help..
1st of all we don't know what OS you have , so taking into the factor , let's say you have windows xp.
ok, 2nd you said you'd like it just for playing games. most
games at least require that you have a minimum of 256 mb of ram...and it would be a good thing to have the latest ver. of direct x. 3rd , your hhd is only 40 gb, but if it is'nt loaded down w/software an music.
i would say that is ok, just to have 40gb. although i would in time upgrade that to at least 80gb.
now to see what video card you have just :right click my comp. icon, properties, hardware tab, device manager, then check display adapters for your video
pentium 4 1.6 ghz should be fast enough, and if you do it carefully...you can tweak it a little faster.
which other people here can help you with.
