- and call of duties.(maybe....not sure...just to test it....really not sure)

i want to play those with a good look, (not wow wee! just purty gud) and no lag, or drop in frame rate every single second, And i want to last a good bit maybe 3 to 4 years. until i can get more monies for the computer i really, really want.

7770 is better. you should be able to play most games, just tone down the settings as needed.

'The oven' would be a decent budget computer, Cons29 is correct with the fact you will be playing with some settings turned down. I assume you are going to be playing in 720p because if you try 1080p that will struggle. Apart from that looks good

Just messed up, still trying to figure out on how to work the threads and the forums, So the Oven should be good overall?
i read a hand full of reviews on 7770, and they were saying it was good and can play most games of 720p, and some on 1080p.
Is there something i could possibly do to get 1080p or will that be a bit to much work?
and any substitutes for parts? again i'm trying to go around and about, 400.

Yes oven is good overall, to go to 1080p you simply would have to spend more money unless you want to play on minimum settings, probably an extra $50 would allow you to play in 1080p (with a 7850) but honestly you are better off just using 720p, it's not that bad as long as you don't use a big monitor

You really only need 4GB of ram so that will save you some money.
