My son bought Call of Duty World at War and we needed to upgrade video card to 256 MB memory. This system is a dual core Opteron with 2 GB memory, and with this video card, it is a screamer. Easy replacement, update the driver, and it is in business. For less than $50 after rebate, impossible to beat.
