You're not gonna do squat with just 256MB RAM & what exactly is a "directx level 9 graphics card"? My guess is it's onboard graphics. The Integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2 used on the Dimension 3000 absolutely sucks for gaming so you'll have to install an actual card. But here's the problem - the motherboard has standard PCI slots only...no AGP, no PCI-express. Look at the specs:

This is not a good system. If you pay more than $50 for it, you're getting ripped off. And even if you add more RAM & a PCI video card, it will never be a good gaming machine.
