AMD Athlon 3800+ Socket AM2 Orleans 2.4GHZ
Gigabyte GA-M55SLI-S4 Socket AM2
Corsair DDR2 PC2-5400 667MHz Value Select 1GB
2 x EVGA e-GeForce 7600GT 256MB

i wonder if these parts are good enough for current games like F.E.A.R, and other futuregames? for a tight budjet if cant afford dual core.

hmm if you are on a tight budjet i'd suggest ditching the dual card and just go with a x1800 or x1900 or 7800 single card it'll be cheaper than cross fire or sli, performancewise it's not a huge loss at all instead i'd forcus on getting a good mobo and chip. the core 2 duo 6300 is fairly cheap and extremely overclockable. It's always easy to upgrade gfx and ram but core and mobo are components that your pc should be built upon. And fear will be able to run fairly well on any modern systems with a decent gfx card. Can't say much about future games with new dx10 cards like the 8800 getting so fast the requirement for games will get pretty high. Usually a build should allow you to game on medium settings for future games for at least 1.5 yrs. That's just my personal exp.
Anyways good luck on that pc.
