Default New AMD System

Hi, New here, Have searched a bit around on this forum for info on the 6600GT, AMD643500+ and Gigabyte Motherboards and have read reviews from, tomshardwareguide and other sites as such for the same parts, im wondering what specific things people on here think of the

MSI 6600GT 128mb PCI-E Card

As rated it as the best value for money out of the 6600 lineup they had.

Also im interested if anyone can give me feedback on the performance of the Gigabyte K8N-SLI, i have had a previous gigabyte motherboard and it has served me well so im inclined to stick with the name. im getting it for about $199Aus ($150US) i already know the aren't strong for overclocking but im only interested in playing games on stock speeds.

Not to be long winded but i would also like to know if im going to get good gameplay out of games such as COD2 and FEAR, on reasonably high settings with this setup. im going to go upto a 7800 halfaway thru nxt year along with prolly a dual core AMD.

Ive Already brought the CPU, and am waiting on the MB and GFX Card.

AMD3500+ (Venice Core) ($252US)
1gb Kingmax Ram
MSI 6600GT 128mb PCI-E ($202US)
Gigabyte K8N-SLI MB ($150US)
Seagate 120GB SATA. 7200RPM'
500W PSU ($105US)
Thermaltake Mambo Tower ($86US)

Thanx heaps for the help.
