Not really, it's still a pre-built. Just take your time and wait until you can build a rig

Whatever you do to the Dimension 4700, you still have an old technology Dimension 4700 that is only supported for XP by Dell (and it has proprietary hardware and the proprietary and undocumented Dell front panel connections). It was never a "gaming" system (the Dell XPS systems were Dell's gaming system back when the legacy Dimension line was sold) and to be blunt, by today's standards totally obsolete for current games.

I had a Dimension E510, which is a later model than the 4700, that I dumped when I wanted Windows 7.

I used to do a lot of user support on the Dell forums (for 10 years) and we had reports of users installing Vista 32 bit and Windows 7 32 bit on the 4700. It worked, but how well it worked was up for interpretation.

I had the very same Dell dimensions 4700 and I was able to run Windows 7 on it and it wasn't too bad but for gaming I think it would be a waste of your money, I'm not sure the power supply would even handles that video card.
