Hi guys i was never into gaming much, but recently felt like playing some during my free time
i have an old HP a1521in PC with -

Intel pentium D 820 - 2.8 ghz PROCESSOR
2GB DDR2 ram
and a silly integrated radeon xpress200 gfx card

i guess the PC's on some ATI RC410chipset, and this the max that ram it can support.

A - Can i play games like COD modern warfare 2 on it? (i know obv not.........but help me with the upgrades so that i can play it and the like)
B - Is it possible for me to upgrade my processor? If yes, then which one?
C - Which GPU should i opt for, so that it comes under $100? (is directx 11 necessary?)

thnx in advance :D

thanks so much for your reply
Are the other specs of my pc sufficient for running new games?
And what is your opinion about the cheaper HD5570. And how much would it cost?

Your PC is sufficient for most of the games in the market. The weakest link is your Pentium D processor which will limit your performance in games.

What is your monitor's highest resolution? Card selection also depends on that.

HD 5570 is as good as a HD 4670 which is available for Rs4000.

max resolution - 1280x1024
and isnt 4670 made for directX 10.1......so it would be outdated i guess....not sure tho.......u tell
and do both 5570 and 4670 cost the same?
thnx :D

No no don't worry. your budget won't fetch you a good DX11 card :) 

So if you can, then get a HD5670
or HD4670...

In order to justify 'good performance' on any of the current games, you'll need to consider upgrading your rig. Here's what you'll need to consider:

1. Processor
Step up to the quad core. You can opt for the 2.4 (which is the basic one after 2.33)

2. GPU:
Try the nvidia GTS250. It';s more than sufficient to run any of the current games and will be able to handle all upcoming games, even if at the lower resolutions. But since we're running a resolution of 1280x1024 (and are hard pressed in finding higher resolution monitors where we live!), it shouldn't be a problem.

3. RAM:
Get at least 4 gigs!

4. PSU:
Nothing is more important than protecting your investment! Get yourself a nice 550w coolermaster (although I would suggest the 650w realpower!), which would be more than sufficient to run your rig.

All this comes from my recent experience when I was building my own rig for gaming. My specs:

Core2Quad@2.33
6gb DDR3RAM
MSIGTS250 twin frozr (1 gig)
Windows Vista Ultimate (32 bit)

I know it means spending big bucks, but you won't know the real meaning of graphics unless you get the right tools! :) 

Just my views.

Wasting money if using more than 3gb of ram with a 32bit operating system. In that particular case, I would use either Vista ultimate 64bit or windows 7 64bit not 32bit
