hi guys, i currently have: amd athlon 2000xp+ 1.67ghz 512mb ddr ram ati radeon 9000pro 128mb 100gb hard disk. now the above pc is more than capable of doing my photo editing and basic video editing. the problem is i luv pc gaming and the wife is a sims fanatic. up till now i have been able to play most games a good resolutions etc till doom3 which i had to play at 640x480 to get decent frame rates. i'm gagging for hl2 and the wifes wanting sims2. the question is would buying a latest graphics card for my pc be like dressing a pig in a silk scarf or would it help me run these games decently. thanks in advance for your replies. btw i'm too dumb to try overclocking etc!
