    You could probably do it but if it's the same one i'm looking at it only has 1 GB of RAM and either a 40 GB or 80 GB Hard Drive, you would probably want to increase both of those so it doesn't run like molasses going uphill during a snowstorm in january

    Thanks, as far as I can make out it has 4GB ram and a 200GB HDD...it's the CPU I was concerned about, something that Windows 8 and 10 needs but 7 doesnt

    thanks

    Well it sounds like yours is different from what I am seeing online, especially sine the stock board in the gx520 is only supposed to take a max of 2 GB of RAM If you get me the actual model of P4 I could tell you what you wanna know for sure

    Well you can just hit Alt+PrintScrn and then upload it to a site like imgur or if you use speccy under the file dropdown menu there is a save to text file option
