$800 gaming pc?

Ok, I've been bitten by the bug to get a new pc. I mostly want the processing power for some editing/rendering capabilites. Not so much dealing with multi-tasking, but will not rule it out.

Also, I consider myself an occasional gamer, and would like to keep up with the current games. At least 2 to 3 years...

So, I'm looking at: http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Configurators.aspx?mid=97&t=c&c=2013481

Need your opinions please..


My current 5 yr old machine:
Win XP Home
1 Sata 80 gig HD
Ram: 3 gig corsair value
Mobo: Intel 915GAG
Psu: Antec Neo-Power 650 modular
Geforce 8800GT
P4 3.0
