Here is the actual setup i have on my system right now (quite old)
Proc: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz
Fan: Cooler Master V8 CPU Fan
Mem: mushkin 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800
Video1: SAPPHIRE 100245L Radeon HD 4850 512MB
Video2: SAPPHIRE 100245L Radeon HD 4850 512MB
HD: WD 1TB 7.2K SATA 3.0Gb/s

OS: windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Mon: 22" WS Viewsonic
Now what i do with this system is basically play World of Warcraft, email, social networks, watch movies.
System has been working fine, but i feel it a bit slow and now and beta testing another MMO and i feel the performance is pretty low, even tho friends with slower computers dont have much of an issue, and i was wondering if its necessary a system replacement, or maybe an upgrade of parts or maybe i just need an OS reinstall.
Im aiming to play WoW or any other MMO full settings without system lag.
Thank you for your reply. Well i run at 1680 x 1050. Im a pretty standard user, havent got myself into overclocking, therefore reason i got the V8 was because the last one got faulty and vendor recommended it.
I will research more into OCing the CPU, any other suggestion?
I was looking into replacing some parts but i dunno what will be good and not that pricy
