Should be fine. You might not run NBA2k12 with 16x QSAA or anything, but you'll be able to run the games and they should look pretty good. The biggest problem you'll have is the severe lack of sports games available for PC, to be honest.

I wasn't sure. Maybe my lack of pc gaming experience. But thanks for your answer.

your gimping your system by just running off 1 stick of ram. get the other 2 gig stick back and pair it with the 1 you have and get yer dad another mem module...
seriously m8 your reducing your overall performance seriously by not implementing dual channel mode for the ram...
