yes, buy you are missing a graphics card.... again.
You need to get a graphics card if you want a good gaming computer, without it, playing a game would be complete crap and be on low settings.
Every gamer out there that plays on their PC uses graphics cards.

i never played team fortress, so i wouldnt know.
but for CoD4, i wouldnt think so.
The problem is that the card is a low end card, and has 64-bit, which makes the card pretty worthless.
i know a friend that was able to run it on high with the 8600GT.
its best to either go with midrange (graphics mostly on medium) and high end (most games on High)
the one you selected would be running on low-med, depending on the game.
tell us your price range, and we will suggest a card to you.

I would recommend getting something better than a 8400GS, that like almost onboard graphics level. If you are doing casual gaming, I'd say at least a 8600GT.
