My System Specs


Barely above it.

The difference between your rig and a more powerful system is that (as you said) with all the bells and whistles yours slows down massively.

The 2 questions you have to ask are:
Does it bother you to not have all they shiny extras?

If yes then:
Can I afford to upgrade to something I'll be happy with?

You could drop in a new GPU and have a bit of a boost but other than that your looking at starting again.
That said your system isn't bad, it's just a bit old.
But then my single core Athlon XP 4000+, 8800GT is still running at a mates house and I use it for MW3 when I'm round.
Is it pretty? not really.. does it do the job? yep.
