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.

If the graphics card is upgraded, you should have no problems. ;-)

I only say this because this computer has intel integrated graphics.
Intel integrated is not very good but just for basic needs.

This PC will play any games that have system requirements equal to or less than the specifications of this PC. I recommend contacting the software manufacturer of any games you intend to use in order to determine the system requirements for their software.

Decent sound is built-in. Just add powered speakers. Click on the speaker icon in the lower right task bar if no sound is present, to set it up.

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.

I am sure it will be o.k. For some games you might need another video card as the integrated intel graphics card is not really made for gaming.
Other than the video card, the ram and processor should do the job just fine.

I have done research on this computer. IF the processor isn't good enough, you can upgrade to a [Core 2 Quad Q8xx0/Q9xx0 (Yorkfield core) (95W)].

Now if you want to do some Hardcore gaming then you might wanna choose a different route. But the games you listed above should be just fine for it.

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!

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.
