Nice amount of ram, OK Cpu, but the VGA is a killer.

Average overall, a better vidoe card would really improve gameplay in newer, higher end games. Right now it's a bit of a bottleneck for you in that area.

pretty much average. that would be about what most people have at the moment although believe it or not the 6200 stacks up alright against the average pc. keep in mind that guys around here see average as being probably far better than anyone else would imagine.

I would definitly go with average. Those are pretty much the same specs of my computer actually. (CPU, Chipset, Ram, etc). Although my card is a bit different.

Average, only upgrade I would suggest is to a better video card and maybe another gig of RAM.
