The source engine is fairly optimized, and TF2 isn't exactly the most taxing game. Yes, it can.

Be aware, it is not a powerful rig in any way.

Yes you should be able to run source games but don't expect wonders, they will work but with all the graphic settings and eye candy turned off. You can grab a HD6570 for cheap ($50) and that will let you turn up the eye candy and get good frame rates. If you really want more eye candy then get yourself a better card. If you have a budget for it let us know

Yes, source games are a little dated so you should have to problem playing it at pretty decent settings with that rig.
