Mhh... It'll run,but i doubt you'll be able to really play games... Upgrade your RAM and CPU... and possibly the video card. CS3,i doubt it. it needs a real good pc... Also,what's your graphic ram?

The good news is graphic cards are cheap these days! Does your mobo have agp or pci-e video?

True, but the total Win7 experience will not be as good and you may experience slow-downs and hangs if the system isn't up to the minimum specs.

I realize that this thread us old and almost dead, but I thought I'd mention that Goodwill is now selling Dell Optiplex GX280's with Windows 7 shoehorned onto them. My google search to figure port why is what brought me to this forum.
