You'll be able to play games at decent settings, yes. Also, you can hybrid crossfire with the onboard video for a boost in your video performance.

You have a nice little rig going on there.

Using the same video card, an older CPU that has been overclocked, and 4GB of RAM I play Crysis on High Settings at 1440x900 with 2xAA enabled. All other games I max out. You should be fine

Excellent!! much thanks to you hikari, surge, and gt7. You guys have been very helpful and very good at explaining things. I'm going to run this build across a couple friends but I'm pretty sure it's going to be the final build. Again THANK YOU!!
