How good would game run on my rig?

Hi guys. Just looking on your expert opinions regarding Hardware on Games. I'm mainly looking ofrward to playing games like AC:IV, BF4, and other Next Gen Titles. I'm not planning on playing on 1080p. I'm just fine with 1366x768 Res and am also fine with having at least 30FPS on games. Hoping to play games like those on Ultra.

My Specs:
GPU: Powercolor HD7850 1GB DDR5
CPU: i5-2400 Quad @3.1Ghz
PSU: Thermaltake Litepower Black Edition 600W
MOBO: (I'm kinda worried about this part) MSI H61M-P23 (It's only PCIE 2.0 and SATA 2)
Storage: Not sure but it's HDD not SSD

    Hahaha we meet again Roxas_Boy. Just looking for other people who also have experiences dealing with these stuff. Thanks again!
  3. bump!
  4. All looks fine PCIE 2.0 is fine for a mid range card like that and even a GTX 780 or Radeon 290X would only loose a few %. If you want to play at 1080 in future getting a 2Gb 7850 would make sense and in my opinion your next upgrade should be to a 1080 monitor (I hate playing at lower even if I have to drop settings).

    I don't see myself wanting to upgrade to 1080p since 720p is already fine for me, even in the future. Regarding my other specs, especially the MOBO, is it fine if the MOBO is SATA 2? I've heard that only SSD's make full use of SATA 3 and the difference in HHD and SSD is just the loading times. Aside from that, anything else? Also, what do reckon are the FPS's I'll get with games, like BF4 or others.
  6. Without an ssd sata 1 will not limit it, BF4 should average over 60 FPS not sure about minimum.

    This is BF4 on Ultra and AA maxed? One last thing, how about the most demanding game, Crysis. Like 45 FPS with everything maxed?
  8. The PSU seems to be low quality.
    Nothing to worry about mobo

    Would stepping it up to a Thermaltake 700W Litepower Black Edition be of any help? If not, here's a list of PSU's. I could probably buy a new one but seeing that I'm on a budget I could only get one around the 2500 Peso Range in the list.

  10. Thermal take Power supplies generally aren't the greatest, but your problem isn't needing more Wattage in your system.
    I'd suggest getting a Corsair CX 500m or a XFX or Seasonic equvalent.
    Your 7850/i5-2400 is a decent mid-high range combination, but you shouldn't be expecting to play any of the newest games maxed out, you'd have to upgrade your GPU for that, preferably to a GTX 670 series Nvidia GPU or high, that'll not only match well with your CPU but also give you great performance, but with the 7850 you might expect to potentially get about 20-30 FPS on High in AC:4
