Depends on the game.

HL2 and CS:Source should be played at maxed no problem though

FEAR and BF2 you will be able to play very close to high, everything else you should be able to max out.

BF2 isn't as demanding as people think it is, however, 512MB of RAM will limit you there. If you had 1GB, you would be able to max it out at 1024x768 no prob.
