Are we supposed to feel jealous of your overpriced Alienware and Mac? Why pay the extra premium for a Mac paper weight when you can just pile some rocks for little to nothing. The same goes for Alienware, I can buy an oven for a cheaper price and it will easily reach higher temperatures without breaking down nearly as quick.

Nobody's perfect, so neither is Hannah Montana Linux, but it's pretty great.

They all suck. They just suck differently. Sort of like prostitutes.
No your computer will not be able to, and this is why:
AMD sempron processor 3000+ mmx 3d now 1.8GHz
This is a single core CPU with a very low clock speed, it is not designed to run any modern games due to it's age, it would only be useful for running retro games, emulators , browsing internet etc
958 md of ram
For starters, it's 958 MB of ram, you don't even have 1 GB, basic necessity for running some modern games at LOW and that would greatly depend on what game and what year it would be released.
ATI RADEON XPRESS 200
I am not too familiar with this type of AMD product but I believe it is an intergrated graphics card, intergrated graphics cards are bad enough but this one was made in 2004 and is based off a Laptop version.
Despite the looks of Minecraft, it is a very unoptimised game meaning that it does not run well on older PC's or Laptops.
Minecraft System Requirements (not offical but agreed on to an extent):
CPU: Intel Celeron M 1.5GHz or AMD Sempron 2200+ 1.5GHz
Video Card: Ati Radeon HD 2400 Series or GeForce 8400 Series
RAM: 1 GB
Now these system requirements for Minecraft aren't offical.
Battlefield 3 was released this year and is a VERY beafy game to run. Here are the system requirements for Battlefield 3:
OS: Windows Vista or Windows 7
Processor: Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or Althon X2 2.7 GHz
Graphic card: DirectX 10 or 11 compatible Nvidia or AMD ATI card, ATI Radeon 3870 or higher, Nvidia GeForce 8800
GT or higher.
Graphics card memory: 512 MBHard drive: 10-15GB
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3:
Another game released this year, the requirements aren't as high as BF3 due to MW3 using the same engine of the previous Modern Warfare games. Here are the System Requirements:
Operating system: Wndows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom X3 8750 processor or better
Memory 2 GB Ram
Video Card: 256 MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT/ATI Radeon X1950 or better
In short, your computer WILL NOT run any of these games at all, even if by a small chance it runs Minecraft, the FPS will be so bad and will make the game unplayable.
No needs for upgrade on this PC, Get a new PC. Don't get Alienware it's overpriced nor a Mac as it is not designed for gaming (Not trying to start something, that is a fact) instead go to a computer store NOT a retail store (as retail stores may have PC's but won't be designed for gaming) and ask for some advice for a new Gaming PC.
If you are handy with PC's go buy PC parts and build it yourself, otherwise buy PC parts from a store (again not a normal retail store a computer store) and ask them to build it for you (again not a retail store but a Computer store)
