    Do you think that the following system is decent value? I may buy it, as my current system is decrepit, and I need it to be able to play games such as Rome:Total War and Doom 3.
    Anyway...

    Intel Pentium 3.2 GHz 'Prescott' Processor
    1 GB PC3200 RAM
    160 GB Maxtor 7200 RPM 8MB Cache Hard Disk
    ATI RADEON 9800 Pro Graphics Card
    Videologic ZXR-200 2.1 Speaker System
    Creative Soundblaster 5.1 Digital Sound Card
    8X DVD-RW Dual Format
    10/100 Ethernat LAN
    Windows XP Home
    Microsoft Works 7
    17" CRT Monitor

    For £954.
    I would also like to know what type of RAM PC3200 is (DDR, SDRAM, etc)

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

    well...a 128 should be alright for a while, doom 3 will probably be a bit jerky on high resolution, but it runs fine on my computer at high resolution.

    my specs are:

    AMD Athlon XP 2600+ processor
    PC Chips SIS-M848A motherboard
    XFX Nvidia GeForce FX 5700 256MB
    512MB DDR RAM
    160GB Hitachi 7200rpm IDE Hard Drive
    30GB IBM DTLA 6000rpm IDE Hard Drive
    Sound Blaster 5.1
    Lite-On 12x DVD-R/RW
    Yamaha 8x CD-R/RW

    i mean my computer is slower than the one i n question, so...with that kind of RAM and Proccesor power u should be fine! :)
