No. Probably the video card.

And while we are here, I think you should upgrade to SP3.

No, an 8500GT is a very underpowered GPU.
What resolution do you game, what type of games do you play and what is your budget?
Also, how powerful is your PSU?

+1 on getting SP3.
Seriously, why are you still sitting on SP2?

Why so many partitions on the HDs? How big is your OS partition?
