Thank you for the additional information and the link to your computer specs, @NeelCool.

 

Before making any recommendations, I want to let you know that your computer simply isn't cabable of being a  good gaming machine.  The biggest thing against it is the fact that the maximum memory is only 2 GB, DDR.  This is simply not enough to work with newer video intensive games.  Also, the only expansion slots are PCI and AGP.  They are very slow.  I would rather see you save your money and buy a newer computer when you can afford it.

 

Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

You are welcome, @NeelCool.  I am not one to spend money on computers unless it is worth the price.  When you decide to buy a computer I will be glad to give you recommendations.
