You should have a good shot at being able to play the games fine, but 
you will probably not be able to max out every setting listed on the 
graphics page and some things there you will not be able to use at all, 
even if you could use them in Windows. Those upcoming games you listed 
are likely to have some special effects that require Direct X 10. Even 
though your card will run DX11 stuff if a game has it, you will not get 
any options above DX9 until Wine progresses further in that area.
