  1. What are your expectations? You can read this review where they used a HD 5870 video card: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cpus/2010/01/04/intel-core-i5-661-core-i3-530-cpu-review/1
  2. Like GhislainG said, what are your expectations? More over what is your tech level.
    You could probably custom build a system that would out perform the one you listed for about the same price.


    I did a quick newegg build and came up with this:
    Asus p55d pro
    I5-750
    G.Skill 1600 ddr3 Ripjaws
    Hitachi 1t HD
    OCZ modular 600w psu
    Total was $635

    throw in a $100 ebay 8800GTX, case and peripherals and your out the door for a little over $850

    just my 2 cents...
  3. What resolution will you be playing at? That setup is fine for the first two games. But you will barely pull 20 fps with on a high resolution with medium settings/high with the 5770.
