Hi

No problems there from what I can see.

Up to date games should definetly work with that system. The CPU is a great choice (AMD lol), and the video card is also a very good one. You should be able to run new games at high quality settings, at about 1024x768. If you'd want to run farcry at its top settings at a really high resoloution (maybe something like 2048x something), it might be best to give more money to a better video card . But I have that card, and its fine for me, plus that CPU and 1 gig of memory will give you a rather big boost in games!

Hope this helps,
Kage

yep, def is lol.

Also the 3500+ is a 939 socket processor, so you'll find that you will be able to update to a higher one rather easily in a few years or so, since this is the latest socket that AMD uses: :) (Thats if a new socket isn't released lol... tut)
