This is my first pc build. I want to go for a nice little machine that can run games like crysis 2, metro 2033, deus ex: human revolution, etc... im not interested in max graphics or any such thing, i just want to play games. but im stuck on a budget of $500. maaaaybe $600, but im not counting on it. so im wondering if this setup will be able to do it?

id stick with something like this. you can cram way more performance given the 500-600 dollar price range

if you can stretch to 620, you can fit in an SSD and effectively cut boot times by 2/3s and loading times by 1/2. everything feels snappier with an SSD
