With a 7950 or 670 most games ultra @ 1920 x 1080 all others on high

your cpu may hold gaming back and bottleneck those mentioned cards because q6600 lacks hyperthreading necessary for almost every latest game.....but still as brett said, every game on high to very high but not ultra......
btw what resolutio do you play at????

Er...what?

What Brett says is probably about right but its hugely dependant on your resolution and what you are trying to play.

it has 320 unified shaders. shader model 4.1 so it will play games. but not well.
the limit of 256MB for vram will limit the size of screen and the amount of textures available. which will likely hurt your gaming performance than the lack of shader units.
the fire pro is a 3d render card used specifically for 3d cad. its reall difference between it and a gaming card is the amount of antialiasing you can apply which can be up to 32x copared to a typical card will do 8x possibly x16 on some higher end models.
but really if you want to play games at anywhere near decent detail levels you will need a gfx card with 400+ shader units for ati, 200 for nvidia. with at least 512mb or 1024mb minimum for 1280/720 or 1920/1080.

Games do not need hyperthreading the i5 3570K is the best CPU for gaming thats not silly money and it also lacks hyperthreading. But you are correct his CPU is a bit dated for a high end card but not much.
