Default How will this do?

I'm putting a $500 dollar computer together for my friend and my pastor. I read the sticky about his but i was wondering if this will do the trick and will it be able to run games like TF2.
I took a look and it looks like it will all be compatible but better safe then sorry. Thank! Would love recommendations too.

Are you going to be doing anything else other than play TF2?
If you're not, scrap the Core 2 and the P45, and go with an 64 X2 and a much better GPU:
