Yes you need to retire that to HTPC duties and rebuild.

I would side with them in saying that your hardware is pretty old. Maybe its time for new stuff.

a quick speed help might be to upgrade to 4gb ram, but for new games like black ops a better comp is probably in order..

upgrade your procie! since your mobo supports ddr3 ram, i assume you have a good board. what socket do you have is it 775, you can put a intel core2 duo there. your vga and ram are just fine

i just saw you can put a intel quad core there too! that would be a huge performance boost.

Since the game only lags after a few minutes maybe the components are overheating during the games. Try and download something like msi afterburner to see the GPU temperatures during the games.

I would agree with everything you have said so far except for the graphics. The 5450 is a pretty dismal performer unless at lower resolution. I would get something just a little bit faster for a good price.

well if the framerate suddenly drops after working fine, it might be a heating or dust problem too

heat takes a while to build up and effect stuff sometimes.. on my computer anyway lolz

..

overall it seems:
clean inside of dust, or reapply any thermal goop (artic silver?)

Upgrade to a better cpu/graphic-card/ram nstuff if you have money

4 gb ram is good for games like that I'm sure

Eh, my buddy played on his P4 with a GTS250 for a very very long time, and just replaced it with a 2500K a few weeks ago. Its still a somewhat viable processor for some of today's games.

It could be your power supply not being able to supply enough power to the components, but that is unlikely, because the 5450 and the P4 dont use that much power.
