Hi, thanks for helping me. My question, I have a Gateway e-2300, a "business pc". I could buy a new computer, but the facts are that this one is capable of a PCI graphics card, and it also has a p4 2.8ghz processor in it. It currently has Very little ram (about 230 SDRAM I believe...) At the moment there is a horrible graphics card in it an integrated one so its really hard for me to guess if this computer is capable of playing games like WOW, COD4, and possibly a racing game. I might also mention that its a "business" desktop. In that it is slim and targetted toward cubicle environments.?
[post="Gateway e-2300

If i were to add a state of the art video card, and ample ram, will this computer perform as needed? Or is there something to these "business" pc's im not understanding? Thanks all.

edit: i see now that it has an inadequate power supply, thats one glaring problem.

Besides the power supply, which you will have a hard time finding a replacement that fits, You only have one expansion slot. It's a PCI not PCI-E. You will not find a good graphics card for it. Plus it has to be low-profile to boot.
The memory will max out at 2 gigs, but that's about it.
You would be better served building a new one and using this one for emails and websurfing
