Dude, ID2 was released in '02. Anything made today will easily run it.

Thanks ElfBane. I was a bit concerned as this i3 processor not as powerful as the i5 & i7.

Just thought i'd check before forking out some dough.

I have run into one problem playing BG1/BG2 or IWD/IWD2 on the most up-to-date computers--the game runs so efficiently that combat progresses almost faster than I can keep up with it. I had to set them to be like some of the older turn-based games and auto-pause at the end of each round.

Thanks Azred that's eased my mind. I can live with it working too well as i normally pause after each round anyway.
