Shouldn't be any bottlenecks, my friend has the same stuff, with his x800Pro, except he has pc2100 ram, and most everything runs fine in high or ultra settings. Except for doom3, if there are bottlenecks, he hasn't found any yet.

that should work great when u get 1GB of RAM, because it would probebly be bottle necked if you kept it at 512mb
