I would say that you are fine. I can play most games today on medium settings with my rig. Oblivion still kills it though if I crank things up. But games like F.E.A.R. and Doom 3, easy as pie.

You can do a lot better. Look at the link in my sig.

A score above 10K can play mostly anything at the highest detail with an acceptable frame rate, the exception being Oblivion.

What is your 7900GT at? I have mine at 619/1800.

Actually your 3dmark 05 score can be deceptive. I only get 8999 with the rig I have in my sig yet I can run Oblivion at 1280x720 at max settings and maintain 30 fps or a little below it in any area of the game other than the Oblivion gates. The reason being that my score is low because of my processor but in GPU intensive games like Oblivion all you need it a decent processor with a powerful GPU to back it up.

I get a bit over 10,000 in 05 anything around 10k is enough to run any game today. Its the resolution though that would be the concern, you may run 3dmark at 1024x768 but wanna play the game at 1600x1200 kinda thing. I would say your main concern would be how much ram you have 2gb is a requirment these days to run any game at full.

Right, 2GB is pretty much a must for most games today. 3dmark05 runs fine with 1GB, and sometimes better depending on your timings. Your score might go down, but games will be a lot smoother.
