Default 1-10 scale of Gaming setup!

Vote my pc from 1-10 (honestly) on how good it is for gaming these days.


Pentium 4 HT 3.2 ghz 800mb FSB
1.5 Gb RAM (2X512 mb of Kingmax 3200, 512mb of Kingston 3200)
X800 Pro 256mb video card
420 watt PSU
160 Gb Western Digital 7200 rpm



Also! Vote on how long it will last for gaming until it is to outdated
6 months-10 years.

8.5, the only weak point suprisingly is your cpu, p4's are not a good at gaming as AMD cpus. but with that kind of setup you can play any game you want at med to high settings.

I'd say about a 5-6. The P4 isn't that great and the x800 isn't very good either. It should hold up med settings in games, though. If you had the RAM in dual channel, you would it would be better too.

4-5. Get rid of that X800 Pro and it would be more like a 7-8. X800 Pro is a terrible card.
