    Microsoft Windows XP Professional (5.1, something 2600)
    Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.60GHz (2 CPUs)
    1536MB RAM
    973MB Something, 1183MB Something
    DirectX 9.0c

    Gambia, The
    well I would consider a complete new build with keeping some parts like optical disc drives

    a P4 2,6 Ghz is quite slow also that motherboard is most likely to not be a socket 775 one and even if it is I guess it won't support anything dual core

    I wouldn't recommend a laptop for anything serious gaming
