For ram: Right click on "My computer" -> Properties. It says ram amount at the bottom.
As for cpu - you need one of latest DirectX installed.
Go to STart->Run-> "dxdiag". see spu option.

Okie dokie that's all I needed. 128 MB RAM, 864MHz...wow this computer is old. At least it's alot better than my mom's old Tandy is. I was looking at its specs yesterday. 60Hz, 20 MB HD, 5.97MB processor, and a keyboard heavy enough to kill someone with.
