    My pc:

    shuttle sb61g2 @ 3.02ghz
    1gb ram
    bfg 6800 agp card

    will it be able to run decent games at pretty good resolutions on that monitor?

    No. You will need a Dual-Link DVI card to run the 3007WFP monitor without 'restricted' mode occurring - 1280x800 resolution max. Only the Geforce 7000, Radeon X1000 series cards and above can manage the 2560x1600 resolution. That card would also not be powerful enough to run many games above 1920x1200, even old titles such as UT2004. I suggest scale down the monitor, or upgrade your PC.
