For an upgrade I would recommend adding 512MB more RAM, and getting a more powerful video card. I think that would help greatly.
I think that was me, because I consider that chip a sempron with 64 bit. And to shadowfalls, not all A 64's are 512K, this one is 256 and is an OEM only chip for PC Company's like HP, it's marketing BS.
The CPU he has is a broken version of this one http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...anufacture=AMD
with the broken part disabled.
You would be advantaged by getting a decent video card like a 6600GT or X800 XL and it would help you play games much more smoothly.
