So basically it is:

AMD Athlon XP 2800 + *333 FSB* Barton (2.08 GHz) with AMD Heat Sink Fan.
1GB PC2700 (DDR333) Kingston, what is CAS latency? Is it 2x 512MB on Dual Channel?
128MB Gainward GeForce 4 Ti4800? Overclocking it would give better performance at a low risk, most graphics cards are built with memory chips that are overclockable by quite a lot.

Overall I would give the system 6 out of 10. The CPU is fast enough but obviously not the latest. Trustworthy and fast enough card even for today's latest games.

I could recommend some updates if I knew the motherboard model.

It is definitely better than your previous system but if you look at the systems these guys have, then its nothing special.

In a week or two my system will be:

AMD Athlon XP 3200 + *400 FSB* Barton (2.20GHz) with a ThermalTake Xaser 11+ Heatsink and Fan.
1 Gb (2 x 512 Mb) Corsair TwinX, DDR, PC3200, Low Latency (2-3-2-5) - Dual Channel
128Mb Sapphire Radeon 9800 Pro (256-bit)
2x 74Gb Western Digital Raptor Enterprise (10Krpm, 8MB Cache) -0 RAID using Highpoint Rocket Raid 1640 - 4Ch SATA Raid with Raid 5
Asus A7N8X-E-Deluxe - nForce2 - Inc 11b WiFi Adaptor x8 AGP + Gbit Lan + 6Ch Sound + 1394 + SATA-RAID + USB2 + 400 FSB - ASUS Socket A Flagship

I also have full surround sound that gives out 80+DbA using Optical cable for best quality sound.
