  1. You need more RAM and a discreet graphics card, then it would be a decent setup.
  2. And i think a new power supply.
  3. lol agreed........ Missed that one.

    Well spotted.
  4. If you already have this PC as stated get 4GB+ RAM a dedicated graphics card and a new PSU if you don't own it yet look for something with a dedicated GPU. For gaming a dedicated graphics is a must (or an AMD A series CPU).
  5. you need atleast a good 400w psu and 2gb ram and a discrete video card to start gaming the modern games
