My main complaint about the old desktop that I have is that when I try and play the games on Facebook it goes really slow. Does the same with some other games that I've put on it. Any suggestions? comments? anything will help!

Alright, so you provided more info than you needed to about your potential computer but you completely failed to address the issue of : What are you using it for? What will you be doing with it? How long will you be keeping it for?

That laptop will be terrible for 3d gaming, 2d flash games and older games will probably run fine. What speed internet do you have? Facebook game lag could be associated to your internet speed.

this should do fine for facebook, modern flash content really boggs down older cpus, especially if java is involved, i say go for it
