I'd say unless you are willing to upgrade your psu and processor, your system either won't power or will bottleneck anything better than this.

The bright side is that it should run the games you listed adequately.

It does not have a PCI-E connector. I know this config will get bottelnecked, so am thinking of investing in a better rig after I save up for it. I just need a quick, dirty and cheap solution. Spore takes forever to load, and Quake 4 frames. Even an old Graphics card will do, just need something entry level. Do you people think investing in more RAM will solve the problem? Is this a cheaper solution?

It won't help any, because these games are going on the GPU, which is honestly, crap right now.. I'd say get a card even if it bottlenecks and upgrade your motherboard and CPU another time.

RAM really won't help you with your lag problems in games
I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:
