Post Would this be a good system?

For games such as Counterstrike source and the new Desert Combat 2?

ABIT NF7-S2 Socket A
AMD Athlon XP 3200 CPU
PNY Verto nVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT 256MB AGP

Would this be a noticable upgrade from :
P4 3.0 pressy
Xfx 6600 gt
Cheapo Mobo

Is 380.00 shipped a good price for these three items together?

Thanks for the quick replies.

The XP3200 is not better than the P4?

Edit: I would sell the P4 if I got this. Just want a faster computer. Wondering if it would be worth it to go through the hassle of selling, buying shipping etc.

Very little performance increase between processors. Keep the P4 and put that money to something else. Get eVga not xfx.

But why when what you have is fine. Your decision.

I understand that the price draws you, however keep in mind that the AMD XP CPUs are a little on the old side with no room to upgrade. You could never upgrade that CPU. if it was an Athlon 64, jump on it. However, stick with what you have. I honestly dont know if you'll notice any real increase

The only increase would come from the 6800gt, right?
