Question Is this suitable?

Alright, I am planning on buying a computer from Compaq and I have seen in many posts that people say not to buy from them. I would like to know why... anywho this computer has an AMD Athlon 64, 2 160 Gig HDs in RAID 0 config, 512 3200 RAM, 16x DVD player, DVD RW/CD RW combo drive, Nvidia 5500 with 256 vid RAM and I think that is it. I want to know if I will be able to play Unreal Tournament 2003 and 2004 on this machine at near full or full graphics smoothly. What I have now is a Dell Celeron 2 laptop and I just want to burn it honestly because I can't play anything!

It will play current games at least on medium settings, but the problem with Compaq is the inability to upgrade them plus low-quality parts. They want you to buy a new computer when your old one goes outdated, so they are going to do everything they possibly can to keep you from upgrading an existing system.

Yeah, thanks for the advice. I am building my own computer now.
