To be honest, as long as you have 1333Mhz RAM, you are fine for almost any type of usage scenario.

If you have an APU on the other hand, the higher the frequency the better :)

Yes, 1333Mhz will be able to run almost any title without any issues. Generally speaking, you don't see much difference in gaming performance with just RAM frequencies (again, unless you have an APU).

The majority of your gaming performance comes from your CPU and GPU. What is your current CPU as well as your GPU? If you feel you aren't getting the performance you desire, one of these is most likely outdated.

APU is what AMD calls an Accelerated Processing Unit; it's just a CPU with on-board discrete-level graphics.

My previous recommendation question remains the same, however. What components do you currently have in your rig? :)  If you don't know, can you download a program called CPU-Z and tell me what CPU you're using as well as what it says under the "Motherboard" section? (A screenshot of both the CPU/Motherboard section would be great).

HD7870 is a great card, so that's definitely not your gaming bottleneck. If you are planning to upgrade the rest of your components, then great! My recommendation of DDR3 1333Mhz stays the same :)  G.Skill Ripjaws does wonders for how much that kit costs :lol: 

Also, using WinXP shouldn't have too much of an effect on your gaming experience.

It doesn't matter, unless you have an APU.

Get an i3/Phenom II X4 and a 7850....

Do you think this will be a good combo? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and do you think this motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
?
and what do you mean by (so that's definitely not your gaming bottleneck)?
