I have a little bit of a dilemma. A friend of mine has a Dell Dimension3000 which has an Intel Celeron D 330 @ 2.66GHZ and 1GB of DDR RAM. He has no dedicated graphics card. I need to find one that will fit with this computer.

Does this seem OK?

Here are the specs( RAM=1GB)

Would he need a new PSU?

He wants it to be able to play games like Company of Heroes. The OS is Windows XP 32bit Home SP3.

He has no PCI-E slot and the bus width on PCI isn't sufficient for gaming beyond something like Diablo II. Not to mention the Celeron is a very weak CPU. He needs a new PC if that's his plan.

This isn't PCI-E.

He only wants to play CoH. Would it work?

I also have a Pentium 4 @ 3ghz that I just purchased for him.
