Can't play ANY pc games

Specs: Windows XP
Alright so this problem has been happening to me for quite a while now, and I would really like to hear some ideas on what i need, or how to fix it.

First of all Ive had this computer for about 4-5 years, and its a pretty fast computer, works well on everything, EXCEPT the gaming...I mean recently ive been trying to play games like WoW, perfect world, nexon games, etc. With no luck.
-games crash
-trouble downloading/installing

The thing that gets me is that they all used to work BEFORE. (can't tell you before -what- exactly though, just that i had them on the computer and was able to play them without any problem).

I checked and it says that this computer passes for all the requirements...
Here is some information about my computer:
CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.40GHz
CPU Speed: 2.40 GHz Performance Rated at: 2.4 GHz
RAM: 1023.5 MB
Video Card: Radeon 9800 AGP (0x4E48)
DirectX version: 9.0c
OS: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 (build 2600)

oh yes and i notice that most of the time when i try to download mmorpg games, the files mostly become corrupted, even after using utorrent. (and i read somewhere that utorrent is built so that files hardly ever get corrupted, so it must be

You think its because of the RAM? Because right now im thinking that the next thing to do is just rebooting the computer altogether.

Anyway thanks for reading all this, any help is greatly appreciated =]

"im thinking that the next thing to do is just rebooting the computer altogether"

What is that supposed to mean? I reboot at least once a day, are you saying you haven't rebooted in years?

haha well i dont know the exact word for basically cleaning out the whole computer, kind of resetting it to its original state when I first bought it (ive done this a few times over the years when it gets too clogged up).

Its different from pressing the restart button...

and yes i have run antivirus scans on this computer. =]
