idk, my uncle said the same thng though. the 3000+ would lag you because of the 333 fsb. if it was a 3200+ then it would be a diff story.

you don't even have to think about it. you can play all with this kind of rig. well there might be some issues with the 5700 pulling off a good performance in case you go for high detail and all extreme graphics options .

I would boost your PS up to 450 watt and the video up to a 9800 pro or 6600 gt / 6800
