Depends on what u mean by "alright".. Maybe it will be playable on a low setting and on a low screen resolution.. But as u can see, even cards better than urs have a tough time on high settings.

Get a 3000+, and get a 6600GT. Then you'll be in good shape.

Neh, if you have to play on high settings, upgrade the graphics card.

I could get a 3000+ but would there be that much of a difference?

And that cards a bit too high priced for me. Is there anything cheaper that will perform well?

Thanks

Nope 6600GT is the cheapest card that's worth looking at for a gamer

Let me get this straight - you're willing to buy a $200 CPU that along w/ it you have to buy at least a $70 mobo. Or you could buy a 6600 GT, which is about $200 right now.

*edit* sry everyone, mixed up posts.

The 3000 cpu costs me £60

The mobo cost me £15

The 1GB ram cost £40

so it isn't that much at all.

I wonder how you got such low prices...3000+ for that cheap?

That's a good comp and should run doom 3 ok.
