I guess your friend doesnt know what he talks about when it comes to actually the parts performance *thats my opinion not to be rude*
AMD 64 3200+, great make sure the Core is Venice tho!
512 mb of Ram, upgrade to a gig asap!
9800pro, perfect for you my friend has one and well he gets pretty good FPS in games*he also plays fear,BF2,CS:source,UT2004,and COD2*
I was talking to a friend of my neighbor's who is a computer tech. He said he built a few systems for people that are cheap, but are able to run most of the newer games.
AMD Sempron 2500 oc'ed to 2.3 Ghz
ATI Radeon 9550 256Mb
The Graphic card just makes the requirements but it wont be good AT ALL their horrible better to go with the 9800pro!
