Can you think of a budget build for $400-500 that will run crysis three on medium settings at 1080p? If not, can you think of a $400 gaming build that will run a lot of games well?

ouch... that's a low budget, not sure if you can manage at 1080p on medium... but here is a shot for you. The first build is a little overbudget, but i built it with crysis3 medium/low 1080p settings in mind. it should be able to manage fairly well all told.

this next build is in your pricerange and though i'm doubtful how well it might manage crysis3, it should game alright.

both would stomp on that build. those two builds will game most games on high or better at 1080p. An APU can't do that. They can game at 1080p if you spend some cash on cpu cooler, a solid motherboard and very fast ram. but by that point you might as well get an Athlon II x4 750K and a 7770, it will be much better and cheaper.

A10-6800k = Athlon II x4 750k cpu + HD 6670 gpu.

If you can i suggest you save a few more weeks longer and get the fx6300+7850, that's a rather good low priced gaming combo.
