    .

    Just last month bought a complete package, on sale, at Best Buy of an

    (acceptable sister of Athlon) AMD Semptron 3400+ 40GB, 386 MB ram 2.4 Ghz, that came with DVD burner and photo printer. It was under $500! Sweet deal for a good computer.

    For better gaming I just increased the swap/paging file to 5000 MB.

    She seems to do ok with larger games now, but

    I may add 1 Gig of RAM for smoother performance.

    stw

    Then 64-bit Athlon or Intel is it. Two years very long for gaming terms.

    Buy a good video card to go with it. PCI-Express.
