3 Simple Steps;

-Find you PC on crucial see how much you can upgrade your ram to (then buy it)
-Find a Good Graphics Card Such as 6950+ and buy it (if your mobo supports PCI-E)
-Buy the Recommended Wattage PSU for the graphics Card (+150w for luck)

Gaming machine upgrade complete.

Other information, Check Temps with Real Temp to ensure good airflow and cool temps.
Try to OC the Graphics card You Buy, Get more Value for money.

Nah, Not for gaming, its at 2.8Ghz - ive got friends that game on less.

If you wanna upgrade Processor then you might aswell just buy a New MoBo. But then you basically just building a new PC.

However buiding a new PC would work out better, you can buy a case designed for Gaming meaning better air flow, cooler components. Depends on your budget.

You can build a pretty good gaming machine for around 800 now.
Or a Good gaming machine from around 600.

Hi spindlycarrot

Looking at the spec and case of your hp workstation xw6200 Here and keeping in mind you want to play crysis I would suggest you build a new rig with good air flow (Case) a better Mobo, CPU, GPU etc...
