Agree with brundle its no use for any of the newer games, it just wouldn't run them. You need something like this click here and this is the minimum really for a gaming system, and its only a 7600GS graphics card which means that you would have to tone down some of the details in the latest games that require the most powerful graphics. I have this card and its played everything so far as long as you keep the resolution down to a reasonable level and knock off some of the graphics options. Really of you're wanting a gaming machine you have to spend perhaps £750 for a complete system, thats including a monitor. See the latest PCA magazine. It would do for anything else but not games. And to be perfectly honest, bearing in mind its using Vista you'd be better off with another gig of memory.
