Hey guys,
I basically wanted to ask if I will be able to play oblivion, css, and fear at 1600X1200 med-high settings with this build:
--BIOSTAR TForce TF7025-M2 Socket AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 7025 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
--MSI NX8600GTS-T2D256E-OC GeForce 8600GTS 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Over Clock Edition HDCP Video Card
--XCLIO X14S4P3 500W ATX 500W Power Supply
---G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ
--AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane 1.9GHz Socket AM2 Processor Model
---ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - Retail
Also, what are the overclocking capabilities of this build??
Lastly, I need a case; can you please help find me a good case for these components?
Any advice will be appreciated !
Thanks in advance

very nice setup, but I advice you to get at least a nVidia 8800 GTS or AMD HD2900 XT & a PSU from SeaSonic or PC Power & Cooling.

This is Cool

Well, I am trying to get the BEST BANG FOR BUCK and I wanted a DX10 card and the 8600gts OC performs well. Keep in my mind my budget is <$700.
Currently, its $523. I need to add case, hard-drive, and a dvd-rw. That should about do it.Need a good case 'cause I really want to overclock the hell out of that 3600+, lol. I HOPE I CAN ! SUGGESTIONS?

Well, Im sort of tight on budget now, but I will consider upgrading in a year. My last question is if the PSU is fine? And seems like noone is commenting on the overclocking capabilities of this build. This is what Im interested in mostly, Can I clock the 3600+ fine with AS5 and the cooler stated above??
THANKS !

That PS should do you fine.
