Which games?
There are several different types of games;
First person shooters [FPS]
Role playing shooters/strategy [RPS]
Real Time strategy [RTS]
Simulations
Third person Shooters
etc, etc.

System specs vary greatly between the types, with FPS being more
demanding in the CPU/RAM/Video card requirements.

I suggest you look to the game developer's web sites for the system
specs, keeping in mind the minimum specs listed won't give you the
playing experiance you may be looking for.

P.S.
BF2 is a mix of RTS & FPS.
