Default Worstation For Gaming

Would a workstation with dual Xeon processors be good for gaming? Would it be a good gaming rig as well as a server for playing games online?

Specs
-Dual Xeon Processors at 2.8 GHz
-1 gig ram
-ATI, FIRE GL X1,128MB
-XP Pro

As for the graphics card, i dno if the 9800 XT is better than the Fire GL. All I know is that the fire gl is made for Cad and animation, etc.

So which truck did that box fall off. Or was it one of those Corporate IT Purchases with an additional delivery address added to it.
"Why just buy one when you can buy two at twice the price."

If one of those puppies fell off a back of a truck and happen to land in my house, I would love to use it as a game server. But ditch the video card.
