i have an older computer, and was wondering if it would be worth upgrading to play current games like minecraft, wow, or black ops 2. the info........ it has a P4Dual-915GL asrock motherboard. the ram is 512mb. the graphics card is a geforce fx5200. power supply says max 385 watt. it would be nice to know a basic total price on the upgrade and if it would be worth it. i also have a left over gt520 graphics card from my newer computer, do you think it will work with the asrock?  i know power supply and ram must be upgraded. thanks!

Intel Core2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHz or AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHz



I think you are going to be out of luck with this one, or at least play it so slowly and at such a low level it won't be much fun.  It took me the best part of 10 minutes to find recommended mininum CPU requirements - the above is a quote from Wikipedia ! - and I am fairly sure they will not fit your socket so you would need a new motherboard. The mininum RAM requirements, from the same source, are given as 2Gb (32 bit ) and 4Gb ( 64 bit ). The oldest operating system is Vista SP1. These are the suggested minima for Black Ops 2.
