Hey everyone!
I've been looking online for a good build for a low budget pc that will (hopefully) run games 1080p med-high settings, but I've been unsuccessful. I hope you guys here can help me out! I will be using this to play bf3, and TF2.

OS not needed!

FX-8150 has bad reputation of CPU performance, plus the mobo for this 8 core CPU is too weak. Compared w/ X4 750K, This CPU has 2 more cores and 8MB additional L3 Cache.
