    I need another one to play Guild Wars, can you suggest one? Sorry i know nothing about graphics drivers and what not i just need advice.


    Also can you suggest other things to help out my gameplay for Guild Wars? Somethings that a mildly affordable.

    Your computer had onboard graphics originally.

    Intel® Extreme Graphics integrated

    http://www.intel.com/products/chipsets/eg1/

    Game compatibility here:

    http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/CS-010470.htm

    It is unclear if that is sufficient for your game as it is not listed either way.

    To upgrade you would need to add a Graphics Card.

    You can most likely choose any compatible model but eMachine recommends these:

    Video Controller nVidia FX5200 4X/8X AGP 128MB DDR TV + DVI VAEV8A8N306L 89.95
    Video Controller nVidia FX5200/5500 4X/8X AGP 256MB DDR TV + DVI VAEV6A8N307T 129.95

    Your processor is excellent.

    Another 512 of RAM might make a difference but only if you are currently using 100%.

    You can view this via the Task Manager | Performance | Physical Memory

    The speed of your hard drive & the free space would also have a bit of impact.

    The most important issue by far is the graphics card.
