I am gonna build a computer this week, I was wondering if it will run sof2, farcry, battlefield, and half life 2 in the future...
Pentium 4 2.80Ghz (533Mhz) ATi Radeon 9600XT Kingston 512MB Ram (400Mhz)
well if you are springing for the 2.80 you may as well get the 3.06, and as far as the ram get the 3200. and if you are getting the 9600 ...you may as well just purchase the 9800...just my honest opinion . but to answer your question ..yes that will run sof2....and farcry ..
I forgot to post, but the ram is PC3200, I dont want to get a 3.0 or 3.06 cause its $100 more for each. Since it will run all these games, I will stick with the 9600XT. I hope i dont have any problems with it:)

CPU is fine Vid card is ok. RAM should be upgraded to 1 gig (for BFV) the 9600 XT is a ok choice, but you would be better off with a 9800 PRO for a couple bucks more. You might have some issues running BFV on hiogh settings with that card, but SOF2 will run like a dream. As for HL2, none of us here can really tell what that will run like, so you will have to wait like the rest of us on that.
good luck with it. Make sure you spring for extra fans, heat is a gamers worst enemy.
