Is This A Good Future Proof Budget Build?

Is this a good future proof budget PC? I wan't to specifically know if it can handle current gen and most next gen titles on Medium To High with at least 40 FPS +

CPU: AMD FX6300 Black Edition 6 Core
GPU: MSI AMD HD7850 1GB DDR5 PCI-E Graphics Card
RAM: Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600 Mhz CL9
PSU: Corsair Builder Series CX 500 Watt ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Bronze Power Supply Unit
M-Board: Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 Motherboard
H-Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB
Case: NZXT Source 210 USB 3.0 Mid Tower Chassis

By the way i will use this on my 1080p HDTV and sometimes on my 1280x1024 resolution screen, i want to know how the rig will handle on both Screens on Medium-High & Ultra.

  1. no such thing as a future proof budget pc. Its already out of date. Although your build is a decent PC.
  2. This is in line with the performance you would see from a PS4/XB1 - in order to inexpensively upgrade in 2-3 years (which you will have to do in order to be able to maintain the same performance on performance-hungry titles like Battlefield 4 and the Morwinds), you will need to upgrade that power supply. I would increase capacity to 750 - Corsair is a good brand and there are plenty of options, it's all a matter of the connections you need and your budget. Here's the one I would choose: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006. There is nothing wrong with that GPU but it is going to struggle to achieve and maintain that FPS rate on the power-hungry games on High settings. You could crossfire but you're better off splurging on a single card now and adding an additional down the road. I would add another $100 to your budget and upgrade your power supply and select an RX9 series card.

    yeah, more than likely, if you lower the details some. Most games are designed to be at least played on a budget PC. You will just have to lower the graphics details.
