It will run medium-good. Video card is the limiting factor, everything else is sufficient.

Good for 1280x720 resolution or lower, I wouldn't use it @ 1920x1080+

I'd get a better video card, like a 5770 or a gtx460 instead, other than that looks solid.

Why are you guys still recommending the 5770? The 6850 isn't much more expensive but is drastically more powerful. Spend an extra $30, it's a fantastic investment.

By the way, this is a nice reference for checking how well a card can benchmark.

Should be getting this tomorrow haven't looked yet at a new graphics card. But thanks for the replies I'm without a pc at the min and hate using my iPod touch to search. So once I pick this up I'll look up what you've proposed.
