You will be able to play those games nicely with that setup. The only thing that I would kinda recommend is getting ddr2 800 instead of 667.

That will be able to handle those games just fine.

What power supply do you have?

Well, the bundle looks good. But I'm not too sure about the power supply. ATI website states that the 4870 needs 500w or greater, I don't think that PSU is gonna be sufficient.

it'll handle all those games except for Crysis on very high settings, but nothing handles that very well, and this is a great bundle, but it costs more...

Q6600 bundle

650W for more power. 550W might not cut it.
