Technically, it's not technical, it's hardware. That system is a little outdated. Ram and video card will not handle much of anything.

Okay thanks, so what would you recomend me to do get more ram? a new video card perhaps? or just buy a new system?

If you want to be as cost efficient as possible, buy an entirely new rig if at all possible. You can invest some money in that rig, but you'd be wasting it, I'm sorry to say. Kinda like putting a 3k$ paint job on a old beater car. No offense. If you have a budget you can make your own pc fairly easily and this community is great at putting one together for you and help putting it together. Time, patience and some cash. If your interested, get together a budget, and let us know.

Okay, see I put this p.c. together from parts I managed to scrap from old junkers...I have $156 saved up right now, around how much would a decent rig set me back?

Yowzers, I've seen some decent rigs pieced together with $500. Put it like this, it's better to invest it with a new rig than buy more stuff that will not help at all, so essentially wasting it.

Get 512MB more RAM (check what memory your mainboard accepts first) and a better video card and you should be okay with those games. If you could afford it a better processor wouldn't hurt, but memory and video card are top priorities right now.
