    A 6150 is good for basic tasks, and even some Prince of Persia :) , but won't be enough for newer games, unless you want them to run in 640x480 res, lowest settings, and 20 FPS :(

    It's fine for now. The highest quality game I have right now is The Sims 2, so I don't think it will be a problem.

    Yes, it is.

    Yeah, it should be fine :) If a 6100 plays PoP: TT well, a 6150 should play the Sims 2 fine.

    Regards :wave:

    I'm just worried about my memory. I have Samsung DDR2 533 Memory, and I know the board has some issues with compatibility with the memory and some cpu's after reading the reviews, although I know most people who leave bad feedback are newbies who can't do anything. I would be the first person to say I am new at this, although. Anyway, it's scheduled to come tomorrow, and should because they are located only two states away (New Jersey - Massachusetts is only a four hour drive).
