Won't be especially good for gaming, depending on what resolution you're playing at of course, but it'll play most stuff at medium.

Not dissimilar to mine except your GPU is a bit slower. All depends on the games and the res.

i used to have a similar comp except i had a xfx 630i and a ati radeon 3650 and it ran world of warcraft full settings around 200 pfs in Ironforge and like max in raids no lag. so this is improvement for sure.
Oh yea the other comp only had 2 gb ram and a 512 mgb gpu. on pci express. not 2.0. lol we'll see. im hoping it will play aion

WoW isn't very demanding at all. That rig really isn't that impressive. Personally I would have went for a bigger upgrade on the video card definitely. Also, that hdd is kinda small. I can foresee that filling up very quickly.

i had a 400 dollar budget, so i built what i could at the time. Definately room for improvement in this machine but when the need arises i will upgrade, lol. why double the cost.
