Slow processor

  1. Hey, I just got a free computer, well actually somebody was throwing it away and I took it, I know what your thinking but it works perfectly. So anyway I wiped it's hard drive and looked up it's specs because I want to use it to play games. I have my old video card, not the greatest but It'll do for now till I can get the money for a better one. I'm goona upgrade the ram to 1Gb very soon. The only real problem with it is it's processor is an Intel Pentium 4 1.4 Ghz. Processors are pretty expensive so I can't afford to upgrade it, so I was wondering how badly is that going to affect my gameplay. I know video cards and ram are the most important for games, but this thing is pretty slow. So yeah I was just wondering if thats goona screw up the gameplay badly. Thanks.

    If you are into playing last gen games, and it has a somehwhat decent dedicated graphics card, it should play em.

    Playing something like battlefield 2 or FEAR however, would be though.

    It would have 1Gb ram, my old Nvidia Geforce 5500, and the 1.4ghz processor
