Yes you will be able to play just about anything with that configuration. The RAM is a bit overkill for a gamer though. Also another thing you should know. The RAM you are looking at is not up to over clocking that unlocked CPU. You need high quality heat shielded 1600 MHZ Ram for the overclock. Dump your 8 GB of 1333 MHZ and get 4 GB of 1600 MHZ.
