egad, good gaming computer skipped my mind! XD Sorry. Depends what game your playing. If you mean Spore or WoW or some other eye-candy, then yes, go with an all out Vid card, and AMD Phenom II and 3 GB of ram.
And if you want to go EXTREME, you can get the Ultimate $1200 USD Video Card, the ATI Radeon HD 5970!

You have DDR2 ram there. The mobo is DDR3. Make sure you change that up

And the 5970 isn't a 1200 vid card, it's only 800 xO
