but either way, probably upgrade the video and ram?? but the rest shuld be fine? what do they have abouve a pentium 4 now? dont they just shove 2 pentium 4's side by side commonly?
. i hav like 35gig of HD left(but theres a LOT of junk i can delete)
,i remmeber playing d2 on a Bad computer back at first- that was lame.
p4's are *#@!. There is one HUGE problem with the Pentium line from Intel, they have an error in math calculations. If you are just doing simple math, it would occur once every 10 million times, but if you are doing heavy math (such as the engines do when you play a game) it happens WAYYYYY too much, like 5x every half hour...
As for processors above the p4, you have TONS of choices. p4's are ancient, and have been replaced like 5 years ago. For one, they are a single cored processor, you will want at least a dual core, meaning an Intel Core 2 Duo, or an AMD Athalon 64 X2. If not a quad core, AMD Phenoms <33333
As for your comment about placing 2 p4s next to each other... /slap
Go save money for a new computer. Buy something above average now, and it'll last you the next 6 years.
