Its good for WOW and crysis to play on low quality. I wouldnt advise to play crysis without MSI nVidia 8800GTS DUAL SLI. So this means you might have to buy better power supply in the future. Or just get another graphics card.

You could probably build something better for less (rough estimate).
Depends if you want to build your own or not.

Price it up on Newegg, see what it comes out at - use:
- An NVidia SLI motherboard
- Corsair 650W PSU (though I doubt the one you are offered will have one)
- Muskin for RAM
