    Upgrading that systems CPU to something that will run W3 well will not only mean getting a new CPU but you will also most likely need to get a newer style system Ram, a new mainboard, a new case, and a new PSU (Power Suppy unit). Unless you get another Compaq $$ board the connections on your case probably won't fit the new board and its possible a better board from Compaq may not work either and would probably cost a fortune from HP\Compaq anyway. About the only things you can salvage to build a new system are your monitor, the drives minus the diskette drive (no front panel), Keyboard & mouse, and your video card. Basically a new system is what you need to buy or build if you plan to play games such as W3 and above. That video card you have won't perform well for graphic intence games either, many of the newer 1st and 3rd person shooters require some pretty powerful dispaly cards, but as I said before it will be fine for W3 after you upgrade your system. I'm guessing your also feeling a little scruntched for storage space with a 40GB harddrive.

    I'd say the video card is fine for what you want, but you will need a new motherboard, case, PSU, RAM, CPU, and you'll probably want a new hard drive.
