Lightbulb :::game system comparison:::

I currently (had) the following system:

CPU: Intel Pentium 4 @ 1.8 Ghz (400 FSB)
MOBO: ECS (Cheapest) 4x AGP
RAM: 256 MB (No Name Brand) DDR (PC2100)
GCARD: ATI Radeon 9800 Pro (128 Mb)
HHD: Maxtor 60 Gb (IDE) 7200 RPM

I am upgrading to this:

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3200+
MOBO: Gigabyte PRO
RAM: 1 GB Corsair XMS Pro (PC3200)
GCARD: ATI Radeon 9800 Pro (128 Mb)
HHD: Western Digital 80 Gb (8 Mb) (SATA) 7200 RPM

How big of a difference (in games of course) will there be? Will I be able to run any game over 60 FPS with FULL detail and AA/AF?

I really need some advice... PLZ!!

THANK YOU so much in advance for taking the time to read this, and respond!

Check my specs. I played FarCry at 1280 * 1024 full blast and was over 40/50 fps most of the game (some minor drop at or around 30) So I'd say Yeah! no problem
My gaming machine:

P4 2.8 GHz
2 X 512 MHz PC3200 in dual DDR mode
integrated 6.1 MAX audio
Logitech duo MX mouse and KB

PERFECT! Just what I needed to hear. Thx a lot everyone. I appreciate it.

P.S.: I am actually selling the old parts. Too many problems with old system (mobo sparking, hdd caught fire, psu was damaged), I am so fed up that I decided to buy a whole new system.
