if you want to play it to all of its glory: No

if you need a both a CPU, RAM, mobo and GPU upgrade(practically a new computer)

P4 never had a dual core version, do you have a Pentium D or a Pentium DC?

I would go for a Q6600 as a CPU upgrade

a Radeon 4830 as a video card

you need a new motherboard since you apparently don't have a PCIe x16, since the 4830 is a PCIe card and you have a PCI slot, new mobo is needed. Take a pick, go to newegg and get one with good reviews, sckt 775, and a PCIe x16 2.0 slot

and more RAM, 4 gigabytes should do it

the hd 3650 is faster than the geforce 8500gt... it's comparable to a geforce 8600gt but much slower than a geforce 8600gts.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
