Well I have a p4 (northwood) 3.0Ghz and it's been good enough for every game I've played.

BF2 would of run on my P4 3GHZ, prescott. Yours probably is good, but not the best. Pentium Ds have horrible gaming because people are stupid by choosing the 533MHZ FSB version. You could get a Pentium D 840, but this kid toasts as high as a P4 560, 580.

You could get the Pentium D 9xx series. I wanted the 940...best choose. Or, a Core 2 Duo E6300 if your board supports it. If it supports Core Duo, it's better than nothing.

my Pentium 4 Hyper-Threading 3.0Ghz 530 runs fine on most games. most games from 2004-older run Great with Super-high graphics (like Halo, CS Source), while new/newer games run fine at Medium quality (like Company of Heroes, BF2, FEAR)

Video cards play a huge part in this too.
my old ATi Radeon 9550 ran the older games Good, and the newer games TERRIBLE
my new XFX Overclocked NVIDIA 7600GT runs the older games EXCELLENT and the newer games Good.
