jitpublisher wasn't really serious.. Why don't you define what you mean by light gaming? It may a very different meaning for you and a hard core gamer. All I know is that your system isn't powerful enough to play some Internet games that my kid and his friends are playing.

They play games like Combat Arms. A P4 2.8 was too slow because they got killed too often (according to them), but a Core 2 Duo E6300 at 1.83 Ghz or anything faster meets their requirements. Apparently the recommended configuration isn't really fast enough.

What games do you plan on playing? What video card do you have?

So could I, but my laptop is far more powerful than your PC and its screen resolution only is 1400 x 900 and not the more common 1680 x 1050 resolution found on 22" LCD monitors.

In this case, speed of the Sempron isn't very meaningful.
