Default Please Help me. I am building a new system.

Hello. I am building a sytem that I want to be able to run BF2 very nicely. I also would hope the system would be able to run games for at least 9 months. I was thinking of getting this package and putting a gig of ram in it. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...=MCM-VNF4-3000

I know nothing about AMD so please clue me in! Also is this video card good? Is it the 6600GT? Most importantly. will i be able to run bf2 with some decent settings? Thanks!

Here I can help

AMD do more per cycle, which means that a 1.8ghz AMD can easily outpeform a 3.0 GHZ Intel in most tasks (And gaming being it's biggest advantage)
