Still, 11.0 Mbps should be more than adequate to run the internet. Guess I should scan for viruses and spyware.

Anyway, doing the little scan thing:
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 3.00Ghz (2 CPUs)
Memory: 2048MB RAM

What does Page file mean?

Uh, graphics card is an ATI Radeon Graphics Processor... I think... that says it has 256MB memory.

Running a check on Titan's Quest. It came through once, but I can't remember if I did immortal throne or not. We shall see.

So, first thoughts, then we'll talk money.
My laptop can run TQ smoothly at Medium settings, so your more powerful desktop should have no troubles.

Page File is "RAM" on your hard drive. Basically, if something is sitting in memory for a while and not being used, Windows will dump it to a specified space on your disk to make more room in your actual (much faster) memory. I usually let Windows manage my Page File for me, which is probably what yours is set to.

If you want to try defragging, it's best to disable the Page File for it, then re-enable it afterward. I, or Google, can give you directions to do so if you want to defrag.
