I am wanting to get a PC that can run newer games at Good settings with a high fps. I don't need a system that can run it at the highest settings i just want a machine that can run games at good quality. Also if the system could be good for future upgrades and improvements that would be great!!

i composed a build that will play most games medium and you have some headroom for upgrade and you will be able to run battlefield MID-HIGH settings http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1oFsD, you may also fiddel around a bit with the graphics card and cpu, this is just a entry level build i think is all around good for media

I was thinking of taking my current HDD and putting all of its files onto a newer HDD with more space. So that would take away the need to buy a new OS. Sorry for not mentioning this in the original post :D

with the extra 90 dollars i would recommend a 7850 ghz edition for it gets excellent frames and if you get a bundel from somewhere like newegg, you could even get around to getting the newer am3 socket processor

i updated the build, still the same link, it now has more upgradeability and a better overall performance, you will be able to play games at high setting with 30 frames easy, heres the link again http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1oFsD FYI this cpu does come with a cooler, but as soon as 30 dollars open up i recommend getting a hyper 212 by corsair, future upgrades would be a 6 core and maybe if you need it a 2nd harddrive

You must have a retail version of Windows to do this .... otherwise, you are violating the OEM EULA (and the THG TOS) in doing so.
