    So I'm currently running 32 bit XP right now, and was wondering if my computer would be able to handle the new Windows 7 64 bit.

    Here are my known specs...

    Compaq Presario SR5550f Budget Desktop Personal Computer Review

    • AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400+ Dual Core Processor
    • 3GB P2-6400 DDR2 Memory
    • 500GB 7200rpm SATA Hard Drive
    • 16x DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Burner with LightScribe
    • NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE Integrated Graphics
    • 7.1 Integrated Audio
    • 10/100 Ethernet
    • Six USB 2.0, FireWire, 15-in-1 Card Reader

    I'm pretty sure I will need a new graphics card, as I want to be able to play AA3. If you have the time, would you also let me know what make/model I will need to buy in order to play.

    I use this PC as a typical home computer, with AA2/AA3 being the only game(s) played. Please let me know if you need any other info. Thank you!

    As it is you're computer will run Windows7 perfectly.
    I'd say an ATI Radeon HD 4850 would play AA3 pretty well you can get them usually for €100 to €140.
