The CPU is very good, the ram is good but the more you have the better off you are. One gig would be excellent.
I can't find anything about a video card, you may have an integrated card but usually they're listed.
Call the company and find out what you have.
It may tell you in your device manager, I can't be positive I've al;ways bought computers with separate cards.
Thanks for your reply, I contacted Dell tonight and were very helpful, they said I have a sounds card, network card and a graphics card. He said the graphics card is the video card and gave me its spec:
Can you go to that link and go to the first column from left (my computer) and go to graphics card section and the question mark and just verify this is what I will need.
The site lists the options available for that model PC
Do as Radar said,check in your drvice manager
Click Start,Control Panel,System,Hardware,Device Manager and then Display adapters
Click the + sign and it should give you the type of GFX card or chip
I think it looks like you do have an integrated card. See how the sim looks to you and how many FPS (Frames Per Second) you get and let us know.
We can help you chose a new card if they are low or you can just keep the one that's "built in" if it's any good.
