First of all, Hi, im New here but i've seen alot of solved answers and threads on this site so i'd like to ask some questions by myself ;)  .

Well but before i'd like to tell u what Config i'd like to buy...

550W PSU
ATi Radeon HD 4870
AMD AthlonII X3 445 3,1 GHz
Motherboard M2N68 Plus
MidTower Codegen 6074
RAM DDR2 2 x 1 GB (Thinking of a 4GB)
Hard Drive 160 GB

Ok First tell me, will all that run good (or will it even run), Im not really a hardware guy but i have a little knowledge... Ok, Will that Run, and if yes,
how much FPS I'll be getting well lets say, on

Call of Duty Black Ops,
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and 1,
CoD World at War,
NFS Hot Pursuit,
GTA 4

All that on MAX or High, or dunno, oh and, if "On what resolution, and monitor size?", I'm gonna run it on a 19" Monitor and 1024x768 Res. ...

And the second, How much Minimal FPS do i need to run a game without any lag.. Like, is 40 FPS enough to run a game totally smooth without any lag...

So please, no negative feedback, and remember, Im not that great at PCs so...

Thanks alot :)

HD 4870 will be more than enough to handle all these games on the specified resolution. But the thing is this that you have a good card and still you want to play at such a low resolution?
Increase the resolution and no need to worry about the frames and setting to bring to lower level.

You might also want to invest in another CPU/MOBO and more ram. The AMD CPUs are great but in most benchmarks, you will get lower FPS and performance to comparable Core i3/i5/i7 CPUs.

If you are running XP, get 4GB of DDR2. If you are going to run Win7, get 6GB DDR3.

Thanks for your replies :) , Well is the X3 445 A bottleneck for the HD4870 or is it a good combination..?

Don't worry X3 445 is a really good processor and won't be a bottleneck for HD 4870.

Oh Yeah that! :p  Well, How much do min FPS do i need to run it totally smoothly... I think it's around 40 or 50...

Most on that list is good for the games you want to play (except GTA4)

If you really insist on playing GTA 4 at high/higher settings you'll need a quad (Intel lower i series should do) and much RAM on your VC (800MB or higher).
