Default Getting upgrades for Xmas, wondering how my new comp will do.

Hey guys, dident want to put this in general hardware ect forum becuase this isent nearly as important as some of those threads.
Ok well heres the specs.
Athlon XP 2800+Barton
Apollo 6800 128MB, with the piplines and vertex shaders unclocked, and overclocked a little.
1.5 Gigs of RAM, 3 sticks, 2 in dual channel
Wanna know if i could get:
Half life2:Maximum Settings/full AF/AA 1024x768
Doom 3:High Settings/ 4xAA/8xAF1024x768
F.E.A.R:High Settings/ shadows totally turned off(I hate shadows) 1024x768
Far Cry: Maximum Settings/ full AA/full AF 1024x768
COD2:High Settings/ 4xAA/8xAF 1024x768
SWAT4/ Maximum Settings. 1024x768

Im thinking these are doable since its at such a low resolution. Well maybe not F.E.A.R at high, but i can dream right?
Thanks!

Well.. first off what size of moniter do you have. Becuase that setting (1024x768) is for a 17 inch moniter.. so. depending on ur moniter size, i can help ya more..

yeah.. but.. 800x600 or what ever, is the proper res on ur moniter.. so really i think, ur card should suffice.. because you are asking what you can run on the settings you said above.. correct?

Yes, but what are the side affects of running it at 1024x768?
