Is it possible to do much? I mean, I think the memory is a big limit. In fact, I'd say only card games would work - but I'm thinking I could be wrong. For instance, you can upgrade the memory of ordinary (non-gaming) PCs quite a bit!

Card games are fine on a regular $500 pre-built computer. But if you want to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on your PC, you're going to need to find a few more upgrades than just a nice graphics card.

Yea i game on a Core 2 Quad Q6600 its 10 years old I can still play most games without any problems. COD BO4 plays on my computer granted i have to turn the settings down quite a bit but it works and gets over 30FPS. My graphics card is no power house it's a GT1030 the non DDR4 version. You don't need a super powerful or "gaming" branded PC to play games.

Gah Carlos why can't we edit posts? Meant to say Black Ops 3....

Depends on the game I think. I wouldn't recommend gaming too much on a regular PC with non-gamer friendly parts in it. Doing this is a great way to burn out your hardware. I would definitely look into getting a gaming desktop pre-build or even a gaming laptop if you're looking to game often on your PC.
