Nice spec, will be running all games at decent frame rates :D

With a similar system (see sig) I ran a bench in Dirt 3 this morning and got a MINIMUM of 67fps with everything maxed out :D

I've already got this childhood dream covered with an emulator i downloaded haha

For all your amusement here are some pics to show what a massive upgrade this is. My parents paid about a grand for this pc from Tiny Computers just before they went bust. I was in high school and counterstrike and runescape were the in games. I'm 22 now, I think this pc is about 7-8 years old.
