If you log into this site you can compare your machine specs to those needed to play the games you have listed. On a brief look I can see no problem with the machine you have specified for those games. It will not play the latest fastest games but it is a fair basic machine. As for Cougar, you can search this site for comments about them, but most I have seen have been positive and they have been recommended by several members.

Your spec says that you have HDMI output on your video card, if you have the same type of input on your TV then just hook them up together.
