How would the AMD Athlon XP 2800+ 2,08 GHZ ( Dual core) and a radeon 9200 128mb and 512mb of RAM perform in Crysis or generally other games like Call of Duty? Would it be better if i upgraded to a HD 4350 and 1.5 GB of RAM And maybe overclocked the CPU to lets say 2.5 GHZ? Thanks for reading :)

Crysis is a very graphically intensive game. Neither Radeon 9200 nor the HD 4350 will be able to handle it. To get playable frame rates at the lowest quality settings you would want at least a Radeon HD5670, HD4670, HD5570 or Nvidia GT240. You will definitely need to at least overclock your CPU as well.

Your CPU can only push your GPU so much, in case where if your GPU was recent and your CPU was ancient, then it would have an effect called "bottlenecking" And as far as I know Athlon XP 2800+ are design to best run on windows XP, so if you are running Windows 7 you need to have that upgraded as well as your RAM. You should look into slowly but surely think about upgrading your system. (Depending on what Motherboard you have, and what components are compatible)

Look into HD 5700 for your GP
Maybe AMD Phenom X4 (you can go with intel but price to profomace ratio is best with AMD I believe)
and 2 x 2 GB of ram

Again you would have to see ur mobo n whats compatible with it

Hope it helps

No. It's been obsolete for years. Kudos for making that system last as long as you have, but you're going to have to rebuild it if you want to play modern games.
