none of these should have problems playing it, since amds APUs can be quite stronger than needed to play the game.

So they will all play on high setting with smooth gameplay? If so which would be the best?

no, not really. i take it you also need portability? otherwise, a 550$ build could deliver much more performance.

you could get rid of the hyper212 since without OCing, you will not need it, and also you could get a FX4xxx CPU if you only plan on gaming.

this man, is a proper gaming build :)  very nice deal on the 650Ti boost.

id say, if you have the cash, go for it :) 

Edit: you could also ditch the W7 and use your existing OS, or search the web a bit. you can get them for real cheap these days

This would be better for a little bit less. You will want the aftermarket cooler. The stock cooler sucks.
