I found this computer in the trash I have a gaming computer already
i got a 47 in plasma screen and figured my family could watch movies and netflix on it
I have a 6 year old son who wants to play games on it on the big plasma so that why im trying to figure out what this thing can handle
ok so its a celeron at 3.4 ghz has 2gb 4200pc ram and a hd radeon 6670 in it has vista loaded up into it has a 350 watt psu I have it hooked up already not sure if maybe I might upgrade to windows 7 but seems to work great I watch movies in 720p or 1080i/p no problem and netflix runs good too so based on all that what kinda games you thing I could put on this thing

A 6670 should have a 450W psu min. Maybe that's why it was in the trash. Also you need at least 4 if not 8gb ram these days.

It'll be fine for a 6yo to play baby games. Just make sure it's electrically safe.

I didn't say 8gb for playing games. Most people play games and surf the net while running background apps. This all takes up a lot of memory - usually 3 to 5 gb.

If you go to an electronics shop you will find suitable games. Quite often they'll have 20 or more games on one disk.

anyone think putting windows 7 on this would benefit it anyway

to windows 7 on this

I went from XP to W7 and it's fine. Vista slowed down pc's too much.
