In a couple of days my new computer will arrive and i was wondering if it would be good enough to run current games on high graphics. Here are the specs

Antec Nine Hundred
493 x 206 x 468mm / Side Window
9 Drive Bays / Tri Cool Exhaust System

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700
4x 2.66 GHz
2x 4MB Cache
1066MHz FSB

OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 Platinum 4GB Dual Channel

Asus Striker Extreme
Socket 775 / 1066MHz FSB
Dual Channel DDR2 800 / SATA II
8ch Audio / PCI-E / SLI / 680i

GeForce 8800GT
1GB / PCI-Express
Dual-Link DVI

320GB SATA 7,200 rpm hard drive

180GB 7,200rpm SATA Hard drive

2x DVD writer +-r, +-rw

650W Power supply

Any comments are appreciated. I would also like to know of any games or programs that can utilise a quad core cpu. I know crysis can but are there any others currently available.

Please don't misinterpret my query but aren't these the sort of questions you should have asked before buying a new PC?

I would have done just what u suggest.

Another point, this seems to be a duplicate thread to one running in Games Forum...
