No, LOL

Ok maybe it will run, but that depends on what game you're going to play. I've read people playing call of duty 2 on that card on medium setting and it works well. But you won't be able to play FEAR or Far Cry unless it's on low or something. Go with Nvidia, IMO.

It will play new games but at lowest setting.

You need to get at least 7600GS, if you want to play new games at medium/high setting

Not true... a 6800GS/GT/Ultra will play fear/farcry/COD2/etc at high settings... So will an ATI X850XT/XTPE

But I do agree... the card is not very good...

What is your budget? we could help pick a better card if you'd like...

Your statement of at least a 7600 to play games on Med/High settings... It just depends on your card you have.
