Well, technically it can, but your experience wouldn't be very enjoyable. You'd be playing at the lowest resolution and lowest settings and still only be getting around 30 FPS, if that.

Hi, there!

Thank you for your help, are there any up greades I could make that would make it better for around $ 70?.

Also, if I played with others online would it ruin the experience for them if I palyed with this computer?.

Again, thank you very much for your help! ^-^

Hi :) 

For that price you will be lucky if it plays Solitaire lol...

Think 4 times that price for a Gaming pc...

Oh and I would want to know what "OFF LEASE" means on that windows 7 operating system... it doesnt sound particularly legal to me...

All the best Brett :)

Hi, there! ^-^

Umm, I don't know what off lease means, but I think it is legal.

Did you see the specs on the computer?, 'cause VoiidWulf thinks it will run it, only on low settings though.

Thanks for your help

You could try to purchase a video card for that computer (I think you can get a 6670 for ~$70), as it doesn't have a dedicated one. The CPU meets the minimum system requirements, but as Wulf stated above, it will not be a pleasurable experience.

As far as other's experience, it will probably take a lot longer for you to load the map with such a slow computer, so others might have to wait around for you. and it's quite possible you will also be lagging heavily when there's a lot of action around, so your reaction to effects on screen will be impaired, so you might die a lot/etc

Yes, a dedicated video card would drastically improve the system. Even a really cheap one would be OK. I'd add some more RAM too. Its rather cheap.

It wouldn't ruin the experience unless someone was relying on you for something like a group boss fight or something. With the dedicated card and more ram, your experience should be OK if you don't mind bad graphics.

Hi, AntiZig! ^-^

Thank you for your help.

So even with the card it still won't be very fun to play?, and do you mean like the FPS will be the problem?

I'm sorry, I really don't know too much about computers ^///^;


Thank you again for your help

It'll still be fun, just not the optimal experience.

Hi, VoiidWulf! ^-^

Great user name by the way!


So how cheap are these items?, something like $50.00 together or more?.

Also do you know how many FPS I would get with the new card and RAM?

Thank you very much for your help ;)

Hi, there VoiidWulf

I guess what I really need to know is, if I'm playing with others with the new card and added RAM what willl it be like for them if they are playing with me?.

Thank you for your help

It will be fine. The machine won't be all that bad with a video card and more RAM.

Hi, VoiidWulf ^-^


Really?, it won't be that big a deal if I got the new items for it?.

If that is the case, then I guess I will buy it. So, what should I look for in the new card and how much RAM should I get for it?.

Thanks,

RadioLight ^-^

Off-lease means a business once leased the computer from Dell, and returned the pc at the end of the leasing period (like a car). We've just purchased a bulk load of off-lease Opti's at my job. No issues. There is a sticker at the top of the case with the oem license key for the OS. When you shop for a video card, make sure you get a low profile one. The 745 is a small form factor computer which doesn't accept full size pci cards.

Hi, P_game

Thanks for the info.

Now what exactly is a low profile video card? and do you know of one that you would recommend?.

Thanks for your help,

A low profile card is a video card that's like half the size of the standard. The HIS Radeon HD 6670 1GB GDDR5 Low Profile is a decent recommendation.

It's Windows 7 32 bit so go with 4 gigs. DDR2 PC2-8500, DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2 PC2-5300. Any one of these three memory types will work.

Ok, thank you very much for your help.

I really appreciate it a lot!, well, I guess that covers everything the only other thing I'm kinda wondering about is how many FPS will I get now?

Thank you, P_game!

I think with the RAM and card you could probably play at low-medium settings at around 40-50 FPS.

40-50 FPS is not too bad right?.

Yeah, anything above 30 will look good. For first person shooters 60FPS is recommended as you need good reflexes and whatnot, but for an MMORPG like GW2, 30 is really all you need.
