    DXDiag, need complete specs of your PC, including RAM, Processor and Motherboard.

    Chances are if your PC is old, a new GFX card wont just "let" you play new games.

    ^If you don't know how to, go to start, run... and then type in dxdiag. Take a screen-shot, switch to the display tab and take a screen-shot of it as well. Also, your motherboard's specs won't appear there, so you need to find the box where it came.
