    So. I have a Dell Dimension 9100 running 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate. Here are my current specs:
    Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 2.80GHz, 2793 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)
    Installed Physical Memory (RAM): 2.00 GB
    Display Adapter: NVIDIA GeForce 7300 LE

    I thought my specs were low-end and inadequate, so I decided that I want:
    Installed Physical Memory (RAM): 4.00 GB
    Display Adapter: NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT

    Is the 9600 GT compatible with the Dimension 9100? If it is, will my computer need a faster processor in order for the 9600 GT to be installed? Will the RAM also call for a better processor upon installation?
