yes but there is bottleneck in just about every PC. the really question is "are you ok with the 8800GT & x3 720 performance?"

its an older card that is starting to show its age.

are you in the USA?
do you have a budget for a video card?
what PSU do you plan to use?
what is your monitor's native resolution?

The Phenom ii x3 720 will provide more than is needed to keep a 8800gt feed if that's what you mean. In fact it can easily run better cards than that.
As ct1615 has said provide us with some details and I'm sure we can help you much more.

you can check your monitor resolution in control panel/hardware/display

if you cant find it just tell us how big is your monitor? and/or what resolution do you play most games at? 1600x900? 1440x900? etc.,

also a budget for an upgrade card, assuming you want one.

the 8800GT can handle 1024x768, are you having any issues with current games?
July 3, 2010 11:43:20 PM

I havent tried to play any games, like I said I'm in the process of building a computer and I was just wondering if it will handle little bit older games.
