Default Halo 2 on 8600GTS?

I'm looking at this 8600GTS from XFX... will that be more than enough to run Halo 2 smoothly/quickly at full settings on 1920x1200 resolution?

I'm also wondering if my current card is PCI-Express x1 or x16:

It will blow away Half-Life 2, and it should run FEAR maxed out depending on the rest of your specs.

Haha are you playing games on your company's server or something??

Should be fine with FEAR in that case.
