I would get the ATI card also. Just because new graphics cards will be out by the time Half-Life 2 is available does not mean it will not run fine on current graphics cards. Besides, the Radeon 9600XT and 9800XT come with a free Half-Life 2 offer. One more thing. I would probably get the Athlon 64 3400+ (socket 754) over the FX. Performance is nearly identical and the 3400+ is a lot cheaper.
