Hmmm... This would be decent for games that came out a few years ago, when the ATI 9xxx series was king, but won't really hold up with new games. I'm sorry, but i don't know how old Spinter Cell 2 is.
Is the CPU a celeron or P4?

Either way, you could probably build one for a little over $700 that will be loads better than this one.

AMD 64 3200+ $160
MSI K8N NEO-F Motherboard $80
eVGA 6800GS $160
DVD RW drive $40
Hard drive 160GB $80
Cheap case $25
Fortron 450W PSU $50
MS Windows Home $90

Thats a rough estimate, comes to like $700 and will totally kill the one you're looking at.
