Lower end games will run fine. I've got a 4600+ and it runs League of Legends and alot of the Source engine games as well as alot of other games. That being said you would definitely benefit from a new computer. What games and resolution are you playing at? | Report abuse Related ressources Upgrading PC after 4 Years(2009) Need Help !

I have no idea how WoW would run though, as its pretty CPU bound. | Report abuse thblite October 16, 2012 10:51:47 PM thanks, any recommendations as to how much memory the graphics card needs? | Report abuse Best solution Deemo13 October 16, 2012 10:55:48 PM Depends on the resolution of your monitor. For your computer, you can't run much more than a Radeon HD7750 or a Radeon HD6670 depending on price. Here's what I would do. I would purchase a 6670 or 7750 for your current computer. If it works out great, you have a cheap solution to your problem. If not, save up more for a proper gaming computer and while you save up, use the computer with the GPU you just bought. Then when it comes to sell your old computer, it can be worth more and you can sell it as an upgraded gaming computer. | Report abuse thblite October 16, 2012 11:20:15 PM thank you very much | Report abuse Deemo13 October 16, 2012 11:22:56 PM No problem.
