Your CPU is still a bit lacking, but as far as gaming it should not be too large of an issue.


Seriously, though. 256? I'd be surprised if you could run tetris.

Whoever said that is... an idiot.


I once told someone what my Graphics Card was, it was integrated graphics like yours was. 256 MB. I was told this: "That is the saddest excuse for a video card intel ever made"

Oh good lord..... 115 WATTS?

I had 300 Watts when I got my new graphics card. Even THAT couldn't run it.

Anything under 400 is stock junk that was put on to save money when selling the computer.

So in short, no it will not.

Replacing the power supply is easy, and inexpensive.

Okay I was wrong again I guess. I just popped open my tower and it said its max continuous watt outpot is 350. Model number is PS-350AB-8. Would that be okay then?
