The 8400GS is not a gaming card, but appart from that the rest of your system specs are OK. I suggest you get a real gaming card, if i were you i'd start with a Radeon HD 5670 with GDDR5.

E8500 | 4GB | 320GB | 9800 GT 1GB @ 720/990 | HP w1907 @ 1440 x 900 60Hz| Win7 Ultimate x64

the 8400gs stinks plain and simple. even with 1GB of memory its still DDR2 which is slow not enough to take advantage of the full addition to that its interface is only 64-bit.a minimum today is 128-bit or 256-bit. u can see the difference. the other people who play it with 8400gs play the game on low resolutions and low settings.This is definitly not a gamers way to play a game on a resolution of 640x480\800x600 and low settings.
if u want to play the game perfectly with high resolutions and settings the card mentioned above should play it maxed out

computers are a second home

As the others have stated, the 8400GS is NOT a good card for gaming. It can't even keep up with many low end cards that are several generations old.

You didn't list the complete specs to your PC, but 2GB RAM isn't very much for Win7, especially for gaming. And when it comes to video cards, you need to look at ALL the specs, not just the memory. Just because a card has 1GB doesn't mean it's fast or slow. 1GB memory is a complete waste on the 8400GS because there's no way the weak GPU can take full advantage of it. You need to look entire spec sheet - GPU core speed, number of stream processors, type of memory (DDR2, DDR3, DDR5), memory buswidth (64-bit, 128-bit, 256-bit, etc). Price is also a pretty fair indicator of performance. In the US, the 8400GS 1GB sells for about $20, what does that tell you?

Have a look at this benchmark chart to see how poorly the 8400GS is rated & notice the long list of crappy old cards that beat it:

You need more RAM & a decent gaming card. It's also possible that you'll need a better power supply. Read this article:
