Looking to possibly build a new low budget gaming pc. Anything not listed below I already have and am going to reuse. What kind of playable settings can I expect to get out of this system for the new COD and MOH games? Do you recommend removing/replacing any of the select components?

The OP's choice of mb was micro ATX . It might be to save some money , but it might also be that he has a m-ATX case
I agree though that I would try and stick with gigabyte , asus , or asrock as preferred brands so maybe

But other than that its hard to go past Batuchkas build which has the much stronger 5770 graphics card

Yep unless anyone could offer better gaming performance at comparable/cheaper price, i would not be irresponsible and shoot my mouth off unless i have a tabulated factual data that states, for the same price models (if available in the 1st place) brand X is better than brand Y in a relatively large sample size? Otherwise best not embarrass oneself with speculation and look foolish @@

Any of these items(or comparable) can I get at Best Buy? Have a $30 gift card I figured I could also use to maybe keep down the cost there.

I was thinking about that. Also considered getting a new gaming mouse.

I had to postpone the ordering but look to order this weekend. I messed up in the original posting and don't have a need for a micro atx board. I do prefer to stay away from biostar but if it gets me the best bang for the buck I understand. Anybody else have any system suggestions, changes, etc before I order? Especially since it has been a couple months since my original posting. Thanks
