I wouldn't touch that for that price. Not worth it you could piece one together that blows that out of the water for less.

I doubt it. At what resolution you will be playing? if it's 1080p i think you should forget about the ultra. The CPU, i don't have much experience about it, but I don't think it handles very well on those maps.

fx4100 99.99
msi radeon hd 7770 129.99
biostar mobo 49.99
And pretty much everything else listed there can be had for much cheaper. For the 290$ he's charging you for the video card you could buy a 7950 for 10 bucks more.
All off of newegg

edit :
Case looks like zalman z11 which is 69.99 off newegg
Hard drive 59.99

That would serve you far better than the first link. Heck you could jump up to a 670 or a 7970 and still have dollars to spare compared to that first one.

Agreed. Go with this one. way better. And if you have some spare, get a 670 or 7970. heck, you can even get a 680 with the spare.

If you have the room you should check out the cooler master haf xb case. I picked one up not too long ago they are very nice to work with. Tons of room for multiple cards and everything runs very well as the motherboard is separated from the drive bays and psu. The only thing is you are limited to 2 x 3 1/2 inch drives for standard hard drives. I think there are 4 or 5 (2 x 1/2 inch) bays coming off one side. I am thinking about making all my future builds in these cases if I can.

Well thats a bit better but still you aren't going to be maxing out your games with it. That cpu is going to limit you and the graphics card probably won't let you completely max out far cry 3.

Let me put it to you this way, you would be very limited in the future. I would just say, go buy an i5 3570k, a radeon 7850/70, then the rest is up to you based on how much you want to spend, but make sure you buy 8gb of ram to future proof a little.

Also in response to him suggesting that the computer is worth 1200 dollars:

That is a terrible, un trustworthy computer builder right there.

This would be my choice you could shave some dollars off with a cheaper mobo and maybe a couple dollars with a smaller hard drive and perhaps the case too but I would stick with the ram cpu and video card for sure. Psu as well you could drop down but I like to stay in the 600 watt+ range.

No I don't believe it will work for what you want it to. That power supply you'd be lucky if the thing ran for more than a year the video card while it is adequate for general gaming will not run at the settings you want it to. If it had a 7870 or 660 and a decent power supply in it then it might be ok but as it stands no.

Nope, Craigslist builds are not trusted, plus you can get a better build for the same price.

Can run most games in ultra settings. Except Crysis 3, which even a 7950 can't max it. It will probably last you 2 years on ultra. Another 2 years on medium.
