Howdy I just bought a new computer this summer from my busboy earnings, and I was wondering if it was good enough to play games like Halo and such.
It's got a:
250 GB HD
128 MB nVidia card (Ican't remember wich one, it was like stealth or something :thumbsup: )
Sempron 2800+ Processor
And That's pretty much all I know.
(BTW it was about $1,000 did I get a good deal?)

its not bad its all good except the processor i have a 2400+ and it only rune at 1.6ghz so yours should run at about 2.0ghz if im right but the price aint bad but i built mine for 325 i dunno what that is in dollars

(just a thought but wouldnt this be better in the hardware forum

Hmm... It is OK. I don't know if I can go as far as saying that is is good, for that I would need more details, but it is at least OK. You can use Everest Home Edition to find out more details about your computer. You can also put your computer through 3DMark05 benchmarking to get rough estimate for your computer's ability to handle 3D Games.
