    My system
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600@ 2.4ghz I really don't no how to over clock.
    2 Gigs ram
    500 Gig HDD+150 SSD
    Evga 9400 Gt overclocked

    The games I want to play are,
    BF3
    MW2

    Gta iv
    MW3
    TD2

    You're probably better off with the 6850 but your system will really bottleneck everything ... imo it's pointless to upgrade

    There would be, but your CPU, RAM and other components would limit your build. What use is a Ferrari if the speed limit is 50...

    I suggest the 6850, but as Alen said it will bottle neck a bit. I also suggest upgrading your RAM if you are on a 64bit system. Don't suggest this but you could also upgrade the processor the socket is LGA 775 if you want to do some research.

    He should def upgrade the ram, but the CPU is just a waste of money. You could get a nice, high-end AM3 mobo+cpu+ram for like $250-ish

    It's decent, wouldn't really call it good. It would definitely limit how well your system would perform though, especially with the slower and lower amount of ram it's paired with. Tbh if you can't cough up a couple hundred for a real upgrade rather get another 2GB of ram and a slightly worse card (the HD 6770 perhaps, it's a great performance/price card). Even though you won't be able to enjoy all the eye candy the games could offer, you'll at least be able to play them decently.
