The graphics card isn't quite good enough for the latest games. You can build yourself for much cheaper and get much better parts. I would recommend a 8800gt for graphics.

My Current PC-
Intel Q6600 G0 |Western Digital 250gb HD
Seagate 500gb HD | Western Digital 500gb HD | VisionTek HD4870 | 4gb Cruical Ballistix Tracer DDR2 800
850w Thermaltake PSU | Cooler Master Centurian 590 | 2x Dell 22" LCD

that 3d card is really weak.

You'd be much better off building your own setup
