Be happy you don't have a Pentium 4 1.7ghz. I mean, that thing can't even handle XP properly.

Modern Pentium 4's aren't too bad either, just add more ram.

Celerons (M 410s) are worse, but combine them with 4GB RAM and they're fast, on a laptop from 2005.

here's a dumb-ish question...

can my pc handle le games like mincraft, tf and some popular steam games

Add more RAM and you should be fine. Try getting 3GB of RAM. If you can't, get 4GB and 1) if you are lucky, it will work, 2) if you are not lucky, it will detect 3GB of RAM. BUT IT WILL run faster, by a huge amount. Chrome was really slow on 512MB RAM.

how do i get more ram lol

i haven't experienced going to a computer store or something to buy computer parts. i wonder if there are for sale ram stick thingies in shops?

The only thing I'm having problems with is my RAM.
I can handle having outdated CPU and graphics card.

Yours is quite decent... for casual stuff.
