Wheatley what AMD CPU is it that you speak of?
The 8800GT is quite outdated for the games that are being released today, if you were to upgrade the GPU i say keep the 8800GT for PhysX or something cause it won't sell for much.
I would take its DDR2? If so everyone would suggest a upgrade to DDR3 motherboards and ram. Keep with AMD i say and if doing light gaming i would go with an APU.
CPU and integrated GPU which will deliver good results on most games.
I would go for:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113280

and a good solid motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131837
1600mhz Ram DDR3 is great performance wise for gaming and everything else, anything higher is overkill.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145345
This is what i would do if looking for a cheap build, sub $1k. If looking for a good build High quality BF3 etc... Don't hesitate to ask thumb.gif

This is too general of information. We need more info.

What quad core AMD CPU is this? Operating frequency?
What are the RAM specs, DDR2 or DDR3? Speed and timings?
What Motherboard?
Is this an OEM built computer or a custom/self built?

You can get all of this info from a program called CPUz: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

Currently no, it is not "high" spec, but we only have the graphics card and Operating system to go by, so it might not be as bad as we think.

I will admit that my two Nvidia 9600GT's 512MB are showing their age but I don't play many games that came out within the last year or so, so I have no need for a higher end graphics card. Something with more memory would be nice but not nessesary ATM. If you're not running into performance problems you should be able to stick with that setup for another year or so, but start saving up now for a new computer so you have the money when the time comes.

Edit:
And what socks said ^

If he/she/it??? is a troll... Why??? I mean: what's the fun of asking a question and then seeing how many replies you get on that question?

I understand there are sarcastic people, or people who are abused, so they need to have the eye 4 eye, teeth 4 teeth principle... And therefore have to hurt people back or so, because people hurted them etc...

But I don't get this trolling stuf???

Or is it because they don't have friends, or very few, and this way they can show: look how many posts is under my Avatar, so I'm famous?

Troll please explain tongue.gif

Or am I missing something? tongue.gif I might get old tho...

EDIT: but ontopic: it WAS a good PC, it sure does all the things a PC does today (incl gaming) but you won't get all the bling bling and details and speed of today's PC's...

I really think some of the administration/moderators should do a little experiment: Create an account and pretend to be a new user genuinely interested in learning about building a performance PC. See if they get called a Troll.

In answer to the OP's question, I wouldnt say your PC was High spec. There are a bunch of games that list the 8800gt as a minimum requirement for videocard. Your running XP so you not taking advantage of anything DX10 or DX11. If your running a 1st generation Phenom, your CPU is a little dated too. That's not to say it's all bad, your system is still better than many low end PC's sold today. You can still run most games on medium/low settings.

If you live in my country, your pc would be considered as medium range.
A quad and 8800gt can still play most of the new games at medium-high settings with 40 fps average.

Believe it or not, most gamers here sport a core2duo and 9600GT

Everytime I go to the store, i'll always see a guy buying a GT210 or GT430 2GB.
those gpu manufacturers tricked a lot of people with their ram scam.
