the biggest thing is the amount of RAM (will be the biggest effect on the speed of your computer). My one now is 6 yrs old and has 2GB.... now, you should get at least 8GB. Also, any newer ones should have windows 7, not windows XP. XP was stopped being put on computers about 4 yrs ago.

Yeah, it should be ok for playing poker... but trying to run any new programs will probably get harder... maybe spend some of your winning... 4-500 and you will be doing fine for a few years

Getting PokerStars is easy: download and install the PokerStars game software, create your free player account, and validate your email address. Clicking on the download poker button will lead to the installation of compatible poker software on your PC of 51.7 MB, which will enable you to register and play poker on the PokerStars platform. To uninstall PokerStars use the Windows uninstaller: click Start > Control Panel and then select Add or Remove programs > Select PokerStars and click Uninstall or Remove.
