Yeah, That sucks

If you've got the money, I'd upgrade it. If you've got a lot of money I'd get an AMD Athlon 64 Bit proccessor.

yeah.... that was considered good probably back in 97 or something. You seriously need some upgrading.

I think the only thing worth upgrading in ur com is the RAM. To change the processor would prob require a motherboard change. In any case, get a new PC.

Agreed. Simply put, that thing is ancient. Give it to the Flinstones, or better yet, find some lowley Dell user, and give that to them, it is bound to be a better PC then they have currently!! LOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!! I crak myself up. But seriously, I recommend you get a new PC, and not a laptop. Laptops are great for travelling people, but if you a serious gamer, or want to be one, stay away from lappies.

Here are two great sites for PC's, sister companies. They have both ULTIMATE PCs, and EXCELLENT LAPTOPS. Anywho, try these 2 sites.

BTW, all you peeps from Canada, the second site now does free shipping to Canada!!

www.cyberpowersystem.com

www.ibuypower.com (they ship free to Canada now)
