Go to this link. Equip it with the cheapest case, AMD FX 6100, AMD radeon HD 7750 2 GB, and other than that make everything the cheapest as possible(except for operating system.) also use 4 GB of RAM. With this you can easily max out all of these games and save 224 bucks if you use the longer shipping. You can even max out the new assassins creed 3.

A 7750 is a mediocre graphic card , i would recommend a 7770 or higher.

I personally would never recommend a cyberpower pc. I purchased one to "get started" in pc gaming but completely regret it. The only components I left in mine from the original purchase was the ram, hd, and case. Everything else I either had to replace to be able to do anything (psu, gpu) gaming wise or replaced/upgraded to get better performance (cpu, mobo, hyper 212, more fans.)

The only thing I did like about the computer when I got it was the cable management. It was pretty good. Everything else though was awful, to say the least.

So, bottomline, just save up until you have enough to buy a computer that suits you and you will be a whole lot more happy because you'll have saved a ton of money.

THis is alright but the GPU and CPU are both a generation old.

DO NOT buy a prebuilt. You will get no performance and spend way too much money.

I will make you a build and post it here in a few minutes.

Cyber power is ok , they have alot of issues especially if you pick a low end psu. i would advise building your own unless you find a good deal on newegg (their shipping is free not like buying directly from cyberpower) the build listed by tiny voices is a beast for the money. but if you end up with a cyber power computer with a unknown brand psu (they usually use xtreame gear) i recommend replacing it as soon as possible because it works like a ticking bomb when it goes down it takes down your mother board and gpu with it.

The cheapest 660ti is $45 more than a 7870.

Building my first computer from this blueprint! Is this really all that's needed to have a working PC? (besides monitors/etc.?) What about miscellaneous things like sound cards, or network interface card? Sorry for a potentially silly question, very new to this.
