The Pentium isn’t “bad” but I would save up $35 more and get a i3. A 2100 will only set you back $120 and will perform rings around the Pentium. A 3220 would be much better.

I’d also consider a 7750 over the 6670.

You current build will "play" the games you listed but you will have to dial back quality to get frame rates. Also the 6670 is a PCIe 2.0 card in a 3.0 slot, which works... but the 7750 is $10 more and will perform noticeably better.

Unlikely you'll be playing on high anything. You'll be lucky to hit medium settings. That CPU is a big weak point

Ya, playing latest games on High plus cheap budget does not work out. Either play older games on high, newer games on low or increase your budget, or get a console. you can't get cheap and latest games on high.

FC3 can bring a $500 video card to 30FPS maxed out.

First off, which resolution are you looking to play at? If your going to be gaming around 720p you may get med-high settings in "most" newer titles, but at 1080p you'll need to increase your budget size like others suggested for sure.

Another option would be to start out on the low end at first, and add stuff when you have the money/need for upgrades as you go.

Incremental upgrading on a budget can still cost more in the long run if not done properly. Compatibility, overall "life" of a component, etc... i.e. dont buy the very minimum watt PSU for the system you're building NOW. A year from now you may have the $$ for a GPU upgrade only to find it doesnt meet the minimum requirements. Now you have to buy a PSU just to upgrade a GPU

If you go that route, at least try to think 2-3 steps ahead to prevent pigeon holing yourself 6 months down the road

I agree with you 100%. I guess I was lazy with my response, as I only meant CPU+GPU.
