I am trying to build the best gaming PC I can for the least amount of $ possible- I am restricted to $550 or less. But I'm concerned that I might not be able to run the games I want to play on high settings- such as Skyrim & Fallout with mods, The Witcher series, Tomb Raider, Metro 2033 & Last Light.
I'd like it to be able to run games coming out in 2014 as well (The Witcher 3, Dragon Age 3, etc)

Would the $20 difference between the Asus Radeon HD 7770 2GB and the MSI Radeon HD 7850 2GB be worth it? Should I invest in a Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB ?

Here's a link to the build

Also I am planning on using my Samsung B350 Series 20-Inch LED-Lit tv for the monitor.

78xx is worth it over 7770 (7770 is the lowest card that i would buy, nothing less)
if you get the 7770, you can play those games just don't expect much. Those games can slow your rig down

Ok sounds like it'd be worth it to get the 7870 then? I don't know much about building pc's yet so how well does it look like this build will hold up for the future? & it will run the games I want to play now, but how well?

no dvd-rom drive or hard drive. maybe the rebates on listed components will help......... $504.44............... will be much more responsive and quicker than the amd machine you put together............
