    Probably, but i am gonna fix the old one and sell it. Still a pretty decent system: 4GB memory, core2duo processor etc.

    But for me it was time to buy a new system after 3 years

    Originally it had two cards in SLI that blows: 2x 7600GT. But i upgraded that to GTX 260 a few months back. Will take that card to the new rig as well.
