Case - Antec Three Hundred
Motherboard - ASUS M4A88TD-M
CPU - AMD Athlon II X4 Quad Core 640 3.0GHz Processor
GPU - Amaze Radeon HD 5850 Video Card
RAM - PQI 4GB (2x 2GB) PC3 10666 (1333Mhz) DDR3
HDD - Samsung 500GB 3.5" Spinpoint F3 HDD
PSU - OCZ Fatal1ty 550W

It costs between 800 & 900 AUD. Do you think it will be good enough to play Crysis 1 & 2, MW 2 & Black Ops, and Left 4 Dead 2 on higher settings?
Does it seem like a fair gaming computer for the price?

It looks good...
What resolution are you planning for ??
Also for a gaming PC, the X3 445 would suffice IMO...

^ Frankly the HD 5850 is an overkill for that resolution...
A HD 5770 would be able to play the games that you want to play at near max setting at that resolution...

But if you will be getting a monitor with higher resolution, then the HD 5850 is fine...

Okay, so it wont improve anything? Like it won't have any extra shadings or what not at 1360x768? Won't it bottleneck at the GPU?

Well I do, and it would really help to cut down on the price. I'll consider it and see if there will be any difference. Thanks for your help :)
