If anything there is out of date, like crappy graphics card or something like that, please recommend me a good graphics card and what to buy to improve my computer for game play. Thank you :)

Hmm excuse me but it sounds like nonsense to me. You don't need to change a video board or anything else "because it's out of date", but "because it's not powerful enough for your needs". Basically if every game you play etc... works fine then you don't need to upgrade anything. Don't change what works.

BTW you should avoid revealing in public your IP adress info.

And that copy/paste of Belarc advisor report is quite ugly. Try making a text mode hardware report using Everest, it will be better.

I doubt your X550 will be able to play Stalker; if it can it'll probably be at low settings. You want something like a GeForce 7950 or Radeon X1900 for that sort of game; at the very least a GeForce 7600GT. Adding a second gigabyte of system memory would also help.

You know you could just go to the System Requirements Lab website and run the test that they have there. That will tell you whether or not you will be able to run games, including STALKER and if you aren't able to run a certain game then it will tell you what it is that is not good enough.

I'm thinking that the graphics card may be the problem here though, you might want to see about upgrading that for a better gaming experience.

Your biggest problem is that X550. I'm guessing you're using an AGP board, so your best bet for an upgrade would be something like an nVidia 7600-7900 series, or an ATI x1600 series graphics card. More RAM (i.e 2gb) would certainly be ideal, however I wouldn't rate that as an essential upgrade.

Be aware, though, that there comes a point that buying/building an entirely new machine may be a better option than upgrading your existing machine to today's standards. Just something to bear in mind.

There's nothing wrong with them, if you have money to waste.

I would definitely not suggest Alienware, I'm serious. As he said before If you are really rich and don't care about money than by all means go ahead with alienware but can I give a better suggestion?

Good service, cheaper than alienware and overall better service, you get an RMA or DOA with Alienware, your going to have a hell of a time getting what you need. Mostly since Alienware joined with dell
