Nor is 'STFU' which not only makes no sense - as it does not abbrieviate into anything beyond Sex with a Transexual Ferret is Unsafe. If you're going to insult people - do it with a High-Brow Joke.
STFU STAND FOR SHUT THE FUCK UP, SO THAT DONT MAKE SENSE.

Yeah if that's what you are gonna be doing then you will need a little bit better of a comp. I'd say like a amd xp 3200 or lower if you are good at OC'ing and then maybe a 9600xt.

Also what is your budget? That will really help because if it isn't anything more than like 400 then yeah the best you will be able to get is a low range xp, but like I said, if you can OC good then don't worry. And a really good budget card is the 9600xt or if you can pull out just a little bit more cash then get a 6600 gt.

Lol; everybody is crazy

Hmmm... don't know any specs for Counterstrike and Warcraft and stuff like that... but I would recommend a mid-P4, maybe 2.8? 2.6; something like that. An FX 5900 or 5600, depending on the RAM included would do the trick.
