    A proper graphics card (not an integrated one) would vastly improve gaming performance, as would a proper sound card.

    It should be able to run most recent things, but not at the highest detail settings.

    Thanks, I've got a Prophet II MX PCI installed in a different machine, Its a pretty old card but if I installed that into the specs above would that be an improvement?

    Depending on what OS you're going to be using, I'd at least double that.
    256MB would be good, 384 would be better, 512 is preferable.
    Especially if you're going to use the onboard video, as an AGP or PCI graphics adapter would have its own
    memory, when you have a chip it shares system RAM.

    this post is guaranteed 100% parrot-free

    In graphics cards, AGP is faster than PCI btw.

    well.. atleast when u want to decide to get ether a PCI or AGP version of the "same" card.
