Would my system be able to handle gaming at 1920 x 1200 resolution?

intel C2D e6750 @3.40GHz VCore1.33125
4GB DDR2 800MHz 5-5-5-15 @ +0.1
ECS 9800GTX+ OC'd to 824/1910/1200 with T-RAD2 cooler 120mm
300GB 7200rpm SATA 2
Win XP SP3 32-bit
650w PSU - yes, it's reliable:p 
GA-P35-DS3L mobo

The system runs cool, cpu is currently 34c and gpu is 29c

In the crysis GPU bench, I get 39.28. Not sure on the CPU.

Thanks.

PS crysis is at high with no AA. And at 1920 x 1200 res, is there a reduced need for AA?

Your system will be able to handle it on high/very high but i doubt any aa.

I currently play at 1680 x 1050. Crysis is the only game I have that I dont use AA for. CnC 3 KW runs fine at 8x AA, so long as i dont have more than 100ish units onscreen. Of which I usually do, so usually 4x AA. And for the crysis CPU bench I got 36.94.

Just depends on the game really. Anyway you're talking about a 30% increase in the number of pixels that your GPU is going to have to deal with which. If your GPU is the bottleneck on a game (especially the GPU fill rate) then that could cost you a 30% drop in performance. If you have the 512MB card then there is more of a concern about you running low on GPU memory and thus causing even slower performance. If you have the 1GB card then I guess that shouldn't be a worry right now :D .
