    Is this a good computer for MW?

    A friend's computer is showing its age & limitations in gaming, so we're hunting for another one. Major priority is its ability to handle the Thief series & Morrowind, and also Sims 2. How is this for a possibility? Another friend had offered to improve the graphics card, btw. Thanks for the help.

    I would think a spec like that would eat Morrowind for breakfast. With The Sims 2 I've noticed slightly longer loading times on startup with a dual-core processor, oddly, though the memory on that computer should make loading times between zones very fast indeed. I'm not qualified to comment on Thief though.

    Any modern computer with a dedicated graphics card will be more than adequate for Morrowind.

    I've owned three computers, each being very different in compatability and graphic specs, but my Morrowind game always worked perfectly on them all

    I was able to run Morrowind on a TNT2 32mb card with a Celeron 433 CPU. I don't think you can get a computer made in the last 4 years that won't run it well.
