  1. Best answer
    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
  2. 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.

    well he is on a 400$ budget so that would be the max he could get for that price
  5. 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.
