    No need to make a third thread within a few hours...my answer stands from your other thread, not really, since it will run anything available.

    For all your threads my reply would be the same as HK's. Your rig is fine. If you do want you may upgrade your GPU to something more powerful.

    Trust me, you're fine. I'm still running a 5 year old Dell Dimension 3000 with a Pentium 4 processor, and everything works well. Although a friend is sending me a faster Pentium 4 to replace my old one.

    My old one is 2.80GHz and 533MHz. For $5 he's sending me his old 3.0GHz and 800MHz with hyper-threading. That's about as much upgrading as I really need as this little machine chugs along quite quickly enough for my taste. So I think you're fine where you are. Unless you really intend to do some pretty heavy stuff, no need to upgrade...unless you want to just get a new computer and send me yours :D
