hello everyone,

before i get tangled in something that i cannot complete i would like to post up my computer configuration to see if my machine is up to the task. i have already did a little homework but havent gotten things to work yet. so here it is, im running:

windows xp on a pentium 4, 2.66 ghz.
service pack 3,
2 gigs of ram,
nvidia gforce fx 5200 video card.

please let me know if there is anything i have forgotten.

thanks in advance,

You won't get decent fps. Maybe playable fps in 2d Games, but not more.

Upgrade your rig.

thanks again

Well, a new videocard is a plus(the 5200 is only pixelshader 2.0). But yours is ok.

The biggest problem you have is your slow cpu. Upgrade to a core2duo and oc it slightly. (c2d oc is easy and compatible to air cooling. It's nice.)

Everything above 3 ghz with a c2d is good for mostly any game. It's even possible to bring a c2d to 4 ghz without a prob.
