How's my setup?

How's my setup for moderate gaming, like Mass Effect2, Max payne 3, GTA 4 strategy games like AOE 3? I plan to upgrade my gfx to 9600 Gt later.

Um, It isnt the best.


You have minimum memory, an average GFX card, and I am not even sure your cpu can run 64bit. For light gaming this might work.

If you can upgrade memory and gfx card it will help.

It is. All AMD processors since the socket 754 have been 64 bit.

And throw in a power supply as well. From what I can find on that iBall PSU, you will be hard pressed to run the 9600 GT you're looking at on it.

Stormy13 is right. The cpu is very much capable of running 64 bit, it's a new series, man, not the ordinary X2! AMD is always underrated for some reason !! Yes, I am worried about the psu, bt my budget is restricted, when I can I plan to buy Coolermaster Xtremepower 460 watt psu : eXtreme Power Plus 460W (120mm fan) - Cooler Master
But my worry is if I buy the 7600 gt before the psu, will it cause power outage? The card i'm looking @ the vendor tells me that that particular model has much lower power consumption than the average 7600 gt...is there such a model??

How's my updated setup for gaming/graphic work? I'll upgrade to a more powerful Psu later this year.
