yes, that will play bf2, hl2, and d3 fine. I think you would be better off getting 2 sticks of 512mb of ram and running them dual channel. Also, it would be better to get at least pc 3200 and not 2700.

Definitly get the PC3200 (DDR 400, and i posted it on ur other thread), and 2x 512 is always advantageous
