Of corse not. Because they obviously develop games that are soo demanding, a user with a top of the line gaming pc will not be able to play them.

Now, I wouldn't say the next four years. With the way things are booming right now the 7 series (which came out last year mind you) is starting to fade out. But that will play all the current games nicely.

The only problem I see with the build is the graphics cards. You want a 22inch monitor that most likely has a 1680X1050 Resolution. The 320meg version may stuggle a bit vs the 640meg version. Unless you plan on not running the native resolution and plan to run it at a slightly lower resolution then the 320's will be fine.

I know your thinking 2X320 is 640 but your Vram is only 320Megs even though you have 2 cards.

You should be alright for most games. I only noticed about a 7fps drop in Bioshock running 1600X1200 on a test. I normally run 1280X1024. They normally say its best to go with more Vram the bigger the resolution but you should be alright in most games. A few require 512mb Vram and will run like crap though.

You'd be much happier in the long run with a 640meg version with a 1680X1050 resolution.
