Hello there!
I've recently bought a new computer and I was told it was an acceptable set up. I know virtually NOTHING about them but i'm interested in buying a few games before I go off to uni. My set up is as follows:

AMD ATHLON 64 bit processor (3.4 ghz apparently??)
1 gig of RAM
120 gig harddrive
and apparently 256 Bit 3D/2D Graphics.. (but i dont know what that means at all).

What would I need to buy if I wished to run Doom 3 for example? Any suggestions? Anything is welcome... thank you in advance. (If i've missed anything out please ask and i'll try to find out.)
