Recently discovered a gem from a past lifetime and was wondering if I could modify it for gaming purposes.

Would appreciate some advice as to how far into the present this computer would be able to go. Or even if it is worth it.



The computer is an HP p7-1026. Currently running Windows 7 Premium.

Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 840T, 2900Mhz, 4 cores, 4 logical processors

RAM: 14gb

Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 4200

vRAM: 512 mb

Memory: 1TB HDD


Ideally I'd like to purchase Radeon HD 7700 at the least though would consider more modern.

Also considering at least AMD FX 4100 processor.


Any advice would be appreciated.
