Cybermonday is coming soon, so I am trying to find the right parts to upgrade my PC.
I would like to run the following games at MAX settings:
-Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition
-Battlefield 3
-The Unreal Engine
-Any major releases of the next generation

Please, nothing too expensive, as I only work as summer job at a grocery store.

My current specs:
GFX- AMD Radeon HD 6450
CPU- Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2320 CPU @ 3.00GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.0GHz
8192MB RAM

Thanks in advance! :D 

Edit: Also, I am just looking to upgrade my graphics card and CPU. I've got $300 to spend.

a 6450 will not play bf3 even at lowest settings

This is a $430 computer which will still not play bf3 at highest settings but about medium with maybe 1-2 high settings
