Question Will this be fast enough

I have an ASUS A8V-E Deluxe socket 939 with onboard 54G WiFi, 64 3200+ 2.00GHz Socket 939 2000MHz bus 512KBCache, Ati 128 bit, with 512mb of ram,
I was wondering if will be fast enough to run pretty decent games like postal 2

...No, depending on what the video card is, that is a really nice system. That's actually a very nice processor and a pretty decent motherboard. Even my motherboard is only decent, and it works flawlessly for me. You could use a bit of a RAM upgrade and it would smooth things out, but you're okay where you stand. If you're interested, let me know, and give me a little more information about your RAM. What's the video card though?

EDIT: Could a moderator please move this to the general computer hardware and software main forum? Thanks.

And if it's that cheap, it isn't that great. Go for a nice set of 2x 512mb for ram, and a 256mb GPU
