a bloke at work as offered me his old pc the specs he as given me (amd 939 pin 2.4 ghz x 2 proccessor ,2 x geforce 8800 gtx 1 gig ded ram sli ,2gig ram ,windows xp
i presume the specs are quite dated but would it run some of the latest games ok (mainly first person shooters)
also i will need to purchase a 19 or 22 inch monitor so any advice would be a big help
thank you in advance

it should be ok, when they make games they take into account not everyone has a top machine. monitors are cheap now so you may as well get a 24 inch.

it wont play them very well, not the demanding ones, interesting choice on the 2x 8800gtx
