    This is including Counter-strike source and also the Upcomming new release Hl2 lost coast.

    my current system im runnin on is a .
    Dell Dimension 8300

    Given what you're using now, the 6600GT will be a HUGE increase in both general and gaming performance.

    Out of curiosity, what country are you in? I ask because if you're US based you should be able to order a 6600GT for under $200 from any number of online vendors.

    What country are you in? That sounds like a high price for north america. I payed $179cdn for the one I got.
    About that fx5200, it is a very low end card, almost anything is better. You will notice like a 300% increase in gfx performance with a 6600gt.
