    It might be tough to get the performance you are wanting with that budget. If you spend $150 on a CPU, $75 for RAM, $100 for a mobo, $70 for a PSU, $50 for a case, $70 for a hard drive, $20 for an optical drive, that leaves you less than $165 for a graphics card, which simply won't be enough for 50+ fps with everything maxed out on those games, especially TERA. You might save a few bucks somewhere on the RAM, mobo, or PSU, but I still don't know if it would be enough. And SLI and Crossfire is right out.

    A couple hundred more and you're probably in business.
