The current specs are:
OS: XP Home Edition Service Pack 2
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 2.80GHz ("Can I run this" only reads 2.79GHz)
FSB: 533MHz Cache 512KB
RAM: 1.0 GB
Video: Onboard Optiplex?
Power Supply: 300watts
According to "Can I Run This" when inquiring about "Left 4 Dead" it says that my CPU and Video Card do not meet minimum requirements which are:
CPU: 3.0 GHz P4, Dual Core 2.0 or AMD64X2 (or higher)
Video: Direct X9 compatible video card. Video card must be 128MB or more and should be DirectX 9-compatible with support for pixel shader 2.0 (ATI 9600 or higher. Or, NVIDIA 6600 or higher).
I obviously know that I need to make adjustments and/or purchase some upgraded hardware, but I would appreciate your suggestions and feedback on what to do to make the best changes for the least amount of money. Please be specific with advice (i.e. overclocking?, upgrade part specific, ect.)
Thank you in advance for your help. Please let me know if you need any more information.
