Will this work

I just bought an AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb and an Asus M4N68T-M Socket AM3 motherboard, I play far cry 1 n 2, Crysis 1 n 2, FEAR, COD 1 through 4 and a few others of that type, I plan to use the DDR3-1800(O.C.) or the 1600(O.C.), do you think these will make a good running gamer. I haven't decide on the video card yet but I like Nvidia, have never used Radeon cards, I currently have a Gigabyte GT 430 OC in my back up pc now, is that any good or what would you use.

    Dear Sir Madam

    AMD makes and they are designed to run with Radeon video cards, AMD is and always has been geared toward the graphics side of things. Nvidia will work as well, but again, AMD makes their own, why reinvent the wheel :) in all post i make, i am putting this in, make sure all is 64bit , or anything above 3 gig is not used, combined video and OS ram, you can look it up at microsoft.
    good luck and happy gaming
  2. Ok, the motherboard I bought didn't work out, out of stock. So my new rig is what I have now:

    CPU : AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4ghz

    I am looking at the "Asus GeForce GT 630 GT630-2GD3 Video Card"
    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2941922&CatId=3669,

    All the Radeon cards I saw have no VGA output, and a lot more expensive than the NVidia, I am new to the HDMI output and usually have a hard time getting them going. I am also looking at a new case, undecided, a new Ultra 700 watt PSU, a new Blue Ray Burner and a new WD Black 1tb drive.
    What do you think, will it play the games listed above on high? I also Triple boot with Win XP Pro 32bit (yes I know it will only see 3.5g ram) Win 7 Ultimate 64bit and Ubuntu 11.10 64bit I think, maybe 32bit. I have only recently started playing with Win 7 and Ubuntu so I don't know them really well. Any input would be appreciated.
