    That would be a good upgrade but you wont see much more fps increase as you only have 1gb ram (2gb is the basic now).

    I would say that a full system overhaul would be needed to fully see the benefits of upgrading. As the P4 would stuggle with most modern games as for older games that were mentioned above you should not have a problem running them with your current specs but for the likes of games such as COD4 or BF2 then you will need more RAM, a better CPU (dual core at least), a better PSU 500W+, and a decent GPU a HD4850 is cheap as chips and performs brilliantly.

    But for the time being the 8600GT should work find and you wouldnt need to upgrade the PSU to add more power. And its doubtful that the P4 would bottleneck an 8600 as they arent very powerful anyway.

    ok i took jericho out, but he exceeds the minimum requirements for every game i listed. and if hes planning to upgrade in the future, its a nice way to compare before and after the upgrade.

    Oblivion for instance

    Recommended:

    * 3 Ghz Intel Pentium 4 or equivalent processor
    * 1 GB System RAM
    * ATI X800 series, Nvidia GeForce 6800 series, or higher video card

    Ok then I take back what I said for a 7100GS thats pretty impressive for that card my friend had a X1300 and he cudnt even run COD2 at 800x600 he had an overclocked e6300 to 3.0GHz as well.

    I still think if you really want better fps and more games then you need a full system upgrade.

    in the meantime to tide u over you could buy the 8600GT be dont expect to turn up the settings to max.

    i exceed the minimum requirements for many games,because my gpu has 512mb,pixel shader 3 etc etc,but the gpu's clocks have horrible speeds,and that majorly drops the fps!

    i'm proud i could run UT3 @ 30fps on lowest settings and resolution!

    You actually read the back of game boxes to judge weather or not you can run it??

    Hmmmm.... I would love to see someone run Oblivion decently on a single core CPU with an X800, or 6800? All slider would be at the bottom... who wants to play games at their lowest settings... they may as well buy a console and play games that way.

    I struggled to run Oblivion on medium with my AMD 4000+ single core, with 2GB RAM, and a 512MB X1900XTX
