  1. you get what you pay for
    you cant expect miracles with a dual core
  2. If it unlocks to a 4 core its really good, if it doesnt then your stuck with a dual core in whats progressing to be a quad-core gaming world.

    As for the 512mb GPU, sounds like it needs an upgrade but if it still plays what you want then your good.
  3. Can you provide a little more detail? Is this a PC you're cobbling together from spare parts or are you buying a prebuilt from somewhere?

    A graphics card described as NVIDIA 512MB, I am assuming you mean it has 512 MB memory on it but I don't really know what that means. GPU model number would be more useful.
  4. A PhII X2 555 can probably play most games; it's certainly better than nothing. You'll probably play newer titles on very reduced [CPU-intensive] settings, but it will play. As to the 512MB graphics card, we don't have enough information. If it's a GT240, GT430, or similar, you'll play any newer games on extremely reduced settings, if at all (depending partly on your screen resolution). Modern high-end cards have no less than 1GB, and most have 2GB or more; but really it's the model number we need to know, not how much memory is on the card.
