Haha. Voodoo really does work!

I'll have to get rid of my little dolls of everybody here, they've been stuffed in a Xeon Box to make sure they convert!

You cant.

But you can get one for under 100
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116001

And it has a x20 multiplier so you can do some insane overclocking, (with water cooling if you really want to go high)

Most definately. It should be able to handle the latest games on high settings for most of them.

Depends what resolution. High resolution, with a 7600GT, not so much. But it should be playable @ 1024x768 or higher with high graphics, depending on the game.

I ran some games on my old comp that I still play at 1280x1080 Or whatever the resolution similiar to that is with a FX5200 with good framefrates so I think I should be ok =/.I don't max out the settings on most games usually I play with medium settings and a higher resolution because anything lower than my monitors native resolution looks like crap.Well thanks anyways though!
