HD 3850 512mb

2 gigs of DDR2 RAM

2.5 ghz Pentium Dual-Core

 

The only thing I don't currently have is the 3850 (hopefully getting soon).

I have basic knowledge of PC hardware.

Will I be able to play Far Cry 2, Crysis, COD4/5, etc. mid-high settings and GTA IV on low settings?

You'll be able to play all the games you mentioned quite nicely except for IV. A lot of people are complaining that the 3850 doesn't actually deliver a great performance with that game. You might be able to run it but keep it going on the lowest settings icon14.gif

i think you should by a core2duo first before the HD 3850

bad things could happen if you match a GREAT video card with a pentium processor (even with dual cores)

I can boot it with my current 6800.

All settings low, and terrible fps.

But with the HD 3850 I am assuming that it will let me play with low rendering and textures but somewhat decent on the sliders (view distance, detail distance, etc.).

I find it a miracle that it booted with my current card and my computer has pulled other miracles before, so I am confident I will succeed to my quality standards.

But if not, there are other games.

I agree, an upgrade to your CPU would be essential for your new video card. You won't get all of the performance out of your new video card otherwise. I doubt that Pentium will do the job very well.
