yes, definetly. The processor is no problem for that kind of issue. However, once you get a 7800 gt, you won't believe you ever liked your 6600 gt lol

if the money's burning a whole in your pocket, maybe you should save a little cash, but still upgrade your video card a little. Perhaps a 6800GS? If you want to buy though, get yourself a 7800GT.
