    Guys,

    Current job has given me a work computer to take home:

    Dell (yes I know) precision T3500
    Xeon W3520 2.66GHz
    8 gb of ram
    I put my own 80gb ssd in
    XFX HD Radeon 6770.

    What kinda gaming can I do with this? I highly doubt Ill be doing any work at home as most of it is finished at work. This will be used on the side for a learning pc(VM's and such).

    If your sig is up-to-date, it certainly will be faster than your sig rig in gaming. But yeah that HD 6770 will hold you back a bit unless the max resolution of your monitor is like 1440x900 and lower and you're playing older games.

    just grab a new GPU and then game on it, that 6770 is going to be the bottleneck for sure

    Or, you know... use it for work or return it to work if you don't need it.
