2.2 gigahurtz athlon
geforce 6200 LE (up from geforce 6100 onboard)
2 gigabytes ram (up from 512mb)
vista's aero rating 2.6 (up from 1.4)
so yeah the thing is only barely better than it was before, but load time is way down and i can actually play Titan Quest now. the addition of the new vid card was a huge boost alone, but the much needed ram is welcome.
