i just gotta P4 Optiplex GX240 a couple days ago, had no CPU, soo i bought 1 off of Ebay 4 $26, the specs on the pc are: 1.8GHZ CPU, 256MB RAM, 32-64MB graphics card, im going 2 be upgrading the graphics card later, what games could i play now?
starcraft? lol, sounds like an older game? is it? well my friends brother, thats who had this, used 2 play CS Source with this lol, and played pretty well, freezing here and there, but had thousands of viruses , that didnt help it any.
how about when i get a 128MB graphics card? then what could i play?
1.8 Ghz is kinda weak IMHO esp considering its a intel (not bashing). However that should do fine if yu want to play CS:S. And a gig of ram will make your life so much nicer. Theres a HUGE DIFF betweewn 512 and a gig.
Geforce 7600 or 6800 is more then enough IMO. Should play just nicely.
Oh yeah.. i forgot to put that into consideration. My current comp should be in my sig now and the video card i have is AGP. I didn't bother trying out high settings YET, since I lag in super crowded areas so i didn't want to step it up. Medium would be the highest to go for smooth gameplay in CS (looks GREAT), but for HL2, high would probably be smooth.
