do yourself a favor and get and amd phenom x4 or fx 6xxx and an am3+ motherboard and then you will be able to upgrade later because with what you now have your pretty much stuck with it

You would be surprised what can run Crysis 3 in the right hands.

As Jaslion stated I would not purchase that set-up because your upgrading options will be limited. FM2 can only run FM2 cpus and that selection is limited.

Phenoms are beautiful processors and the AM3+ cpu options are high. For $400 if you consider used parts is easily doable and you will get a better system

I agree, I don't trust a good 90% of the Youtube videos out there. I am definitely skeptical with the OP about a Radeon 7770 being able to run Crysis or any high end games.

On craigslist (in my area) and on eBay I have seen better cards for a cheaper price. In addition, I personally stay away from the xx70 series AMD offers tends to just be a rehash with new DX revision. ex 5770 is a 6770.
