Question Good Enough Computer

I am building a new computer for graphic design (mainly photoshop and flash) and gaming. I plan on playing Half-Life 2, which I run fine on my current PC, and FEAR, which I cannot currently run. I will be getting:
AMD 3200+ Venice
ASUS ASUS A8N-SLI Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI
Patriot Signature Series 1GB DDR 400 (PC 3200)
XFX Geforce 6600GT 128mb
Western Digital 120Gb HDD

Will this be a good enough computer to run games such as FEAR on decent settings and games like Half-Life 2 on high settings?

Thanks,
Just5Commas

how much RAM?
Other than that..I dont think it can run it on the best quality. But it may run it still.

Replace the 6600GT 128mb with a 6800GS 256mb and you'll be able to play them all!

It should run just fine.

Yeah about the video card... I don't have enough for a 256 straight off, so I am getting one 6600GT now and another in a month or so for SLI.

That should be good though I don't know anything about that RAM. You might want to invest in some good Corsair or OCZ RAM, but get other input before you change that, that RAM may be spectacular, I just can't say.

I have an Antec 550w power supply so that should be plenty for the SLI
