That would run games quite well. You would not have 4xAA, but you still could game pretty good.

You could prob run most games now at max settings, and it would be able to handle future games pretty decently.

Well I'm sure you could run any game, but the most intense games you could probably only run at medium settings. Maybe only low settings for some games if you were running at 1680x1050...

AA is Anti-Aliasing. What it does is minimizes the distortion and makes the game look clearer. It looks really nice when used.

Ya you should have a good experience on most games you just may have to cut out some of the eye candy and AA as most have mentioned.
