that machine actually is pretty B.A for gaming, you could run games on medium high most likely. another thing to consider is switching out the 1055 (if you havent bought this stuff) with the phenom x4 980, four cores is much better for gaming right now.

If this hasn't been bought yet, the recent sub-$200 gaming CPU article showed that there is no price point at which Intel does not outperform AMD in games; sad but true. Of course, prices may vary in your country, and that doesn't mean an AMD machine is a bad build, just that it will not perform as well as a similarly priced Intel system.

hasnol, aprroximately how much is your budget? Do you already have some of the hardware? These answers will help posters guide you. I did a rough calculation of the components you list and came to @$700. Does this sound correct?

Your system looks good...are you set on AMD or would you consider Intel? Let us know your budget and we can bounce a few ideas around. :)
