Thanks! http://pcpartpicker.com/p/NoMZ My question is, would this be sufficient enough to run Warframe with 30+ FPS?

Get a 7770, it's much better and comes with free game. Get a higher output PSU so that you can reuse it when you upgrade.

(Generated by PCPartPicker 2013-03-31 04:28 EDT-0400) Changed processor to a phenom x4 965 BE. Although the i3-3220 wins due to most games only needing ~2cores, the gpu upgrade is worth it. A phenom x4 965 + 7790 will beat an i3-3220 + 7770. Got cheaper, DDR3-1600 ram. Upgraded to 1tb HDD Grabbed a mid-tower case instead. I feel like you'll have more upgrade options with a mid-tower rather than a micro-atx case. If you want, you could always grab the micro-atx instead.
