the memory wont work with that processor. with socket 939 you need 184 pin ram. upgrade to am2 or get ddr400 ram. go with am2 if you can. the gfx card will handle those games well.

I would also like to mention that from what I have heard 2 gigs of ram isn't really needed for most games out today. In fact, when running 2 gigs of ram the timings are actually slower. My take on this is that more memory is good for things like digital editing and stuff like that. Just my thought, I may be wrong but I like to help people out

I always hear games like BF2 that hog up memory. So I would go for 2gb ram.
