Dell Dimension 4700???

what do you guys think? should i get a cheap @$$ PC and put my GTX 560Ti OC edition GPU in it and upgrade the ram to 4gb for a decent gaming ring? it has a Pentium 4 @3ghz and if i get it, it, i will put my gtx 560Ti OC in and upgrade the RAM to 4GB (max supported) also im would swap out my SSD in my laptop with the HDD in that so it will be running windows 7. i ask because ive found one ready to run for $80 on craigslist.

would i be able to play BF3, Farcry 3, Dirt 3 on max/high settings with 1600x900 resolution?

obvisiously this is the only thing that this computer will do. just gaming. nothing else. not even internet browsing.

You can`t swap a laptop hard drive for a desk top hard drive, you silly And it wouldn`t boot anyway

Well ya you could use a laptop hdrive in a desktop, but not the opposite, ya know

If we could run those games on high settings, on that hardware, then we wouldn`t have to be spending the money we do.
