Inte® Pentium 4 CPU 3.40GHz,

Nice Box! Can't see much of anything you need to upgrade.

Sounds to me like you're having software issues, rather than hardware. Over the course of time, even with a secure setup, XP tends to become a bit unstable. I suggest formatting and reinstalling XP.

Of course, when you complain about it being laggy, this is most likely because of the speed of your internet connection. For decent gaming you should probally be on atleast DSL, preferably cable. :tazz:
