This PC does not have a built-in dialup modem. You will need to add a third-party PCI modem or a third-party external USB modem for this functionality.

No, not included, but card slots are available to install one. With six USB ports, and external dial-up modem would be a good idea.

3.2GHz. Since Hewlett-Packard only tests and supports PCs in their original configuration, any upgrades will need to be done at the owner's discretion after purchase.

According to HP, the processor in this computer is the Pentium E5800 which has an operating speed of up to 3.4 GHz. It does have room for a graphics card, but the integrated video becomes unavailable when a graphics card is installed. Hope this helps!

This computer contains Intel Integrated Graphics.

From my past experience with Intel Integrated, it is not good for running games.

I would recommend buying another video card for this computer.
Now, I could be wrong. It might be o.k to run games like this. I know my laptop I bought 3 years ago has Intel Integrated and it doesn't run minecraft with settings on high. I have to have the FOG on 2 and smooth lighting off.

If your going to use this product for gaming, then I would HIGHLY recommend that you buy a different Graphics Card. Lol.

This PC features the Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500, which only uses shared video memory. It will only be able to play games that don't require dedicated video memory.

It should run it just fine if you upgrade the graphics card in it.
Ofcourse, I can't be the true judge of it. I am just going by the specs.

It comes with Intel Integrated Graphics. Intel, well, is not made for gaming from my experience. It is good for basic needs. It might be o.k with minecraft. But if your going to use this computer for mostly gaming, then I highly recommend upgrading to a different graphics card.

Yep, There is. I suggest you do upgrade as intel graphics are not very good. Lol.

From HP's website, its
1 PCI Express x16 slot for graphics card

answer 2
This PC does have 1 PCI Express x16. Keep in mind though it only has 220 watt max Power supply, and it is slimline case, so your choices for a power supply to power a add in video card are limited and expensive and a video card that will fit in a slimline is limited also and 75% of Gaming video cards wont fit. The word of advice for anyone looking to game and put there own video card to do it is to avoid slimline cases computers.

No, it is not wireless ready. You would need to purchase an adapter or connect via an Ethernet cable. USB WiFi adpaters or a PCI adapter card will get you connected wirelessly.
