    So everything about your computer is old as fuck.

    Build a new PC for games later on, for now what you're going to have to do is buy a graphics card to ease some of the load issues. Installing one is straight forward and for your purposes you don't need an extremely good card either. Since your requirements are low that means you don't have to bother with worrying about getting a card which requires a 12v rail since a card that'll be able to run this game will be able to run purely off of PCI-E.

    It's better and cheaper to build your own PC...But Alen says that that AMD processor sucks, so I think I gotta change that.

    256MB GeForce 9100 (HP) 114 °C how the fuck has your computer not melt yet? Holy shit thats 237 Fahrenheit. Its smooth then drops because your GPU is overheating, open your PC and clean that shit.

    To all those saying the parts are old, the CPU isn't that old, its the current generation of AMD Athlon CPU's. Some parts like the ram and gpu are old however.
    And yes, if you have an air compressor, open up your PC and blow the shit out of it. I've done it to mine, you won't believe how much dust gets in there.
