Is this a good gaming pc?

Hi everyone,

Im new to the forums and new to PC gaming aswell. :)
I'd like to try PC gaming because the new xbox one and ps4 that are coming out don't appeal to me.

As I said im new to pc gaming so I don't know much about hardware.

Do you think this is a good setup to run upcoming games like Battlefield 4 on atleast high?

Specs:

AMD Black Edition 6300
Cooler master Elite 430
ASUS M5A97 LE
Sapphire RADEON HD7870 Dual-X
XFX Core Edition PRO550W
Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB DDR3 1600MHz

I don't have the money to buy a high-end machine so do you think this is enough?
Thanks :)

    Nice setup! I'll have a look at it!
  5. because we have a bargain these days in amd gpu... get a hd 7970 or 7950 like SR-71 posted
    but i prefer fx 6350 for a small gap in price and with a killer cpu
