I was wondering what would be better for daily use and for some light gaming such as league etc. My specs are pretty bad but they are:

Pentium 4 520 2.80ghz
4gb pc2-6400 400ghz ram
Xfx Hd Radeon 4350 1gb Gpu

I wanted to know which is would run smoother and also faster for gaming. Thanks :)

you named a cpu, ram and gpu, is there something you would like to compare it to?

thats a pretty weak system, so anything new would be a large upgrade.

XP as it is lighter on ram usage, less graphics feature to tax CPU/GPU (no AERO)

There are no CPU's that are really that much faster than yours

I think the Dell is using the 915 chipset so the only CPU's that would be an upgrade would be faster Pentium 4's
