Default How's my current setup these days?

Haven't been keeping up with the times at all since my computer has done everything I want it to, just curious...on a scale of 1 - 10, what's my setup at these days? I remember it being about a 8 when I got it.

id give it a 7-6ish....

I have a 6800gs too

But yeah, its unbeliveable how many better graphics cards are out today. Even tho the 6800gs is awesome XD

Ram= 9
Cpu= 8 (imo)
Gpu=7.5

Dont upgrade ram or cpu yet.. next thing i think you should upgrade would be you gpu, imo most games dont even need all the horsepower all these new cpus can put out, then upgrade the cpu

^ (9/7/2010): Ha, I remember when that was the stuff. My water cooling has since leaked and fried my mobo. So now I'm rocking an MSI laptop with an i5 430m :)

Yeah as far as gaming is concerned is what i'm talking about.

I think my next move is to upgrade the gpu and get another gig of RAM.
