No. It will verify your system specs and wont install if you have a 750mhz processor and say that you do not meet the minimum requirements. Thats why I'm saying throw in the money towards a new computer.

yep, you need a processor at minumum speed of 2.4GHz to come up with any high end graphic card such as Radeon 9800 or GeForce 5900.

try that plan noknowledge and play the game, if you still want it to run faster, then you upgrade.

following your posts, you are too skeptical about upgrading, so make sure you're sure that you have to before you do.

Overclock your processor. There are guides everywhere on here, or do Google it. It wont be too hard, just dedicate an afternoon to learning how to do it, its actually quite fun
