yea well that looks about as good as your gonna get for ur budget All I want to say, is how big is that old HDD... Cuz if its under about 200GB, your gonna have a hell of a time gaming on it lawl. As well as the fact if it is really old, it will be slow, and thus slow down your game loading/installing/patching time.
