What do you think of this rig ?

I'm upgrading my PC which is :
Intel Celeron 3Ghz
geforce 7050/nforce 610i integrated graphics 512mb

Intel Pentium Dual core 3Ghz
3GB DDR2(I'm running windows XP 32bit so I don't need 4GB)
Sapphire AMD Radeon 6670 1GB GDDR5

I know its not a high end PC but I want a low-budget PC that can run(just RUN with a good fps) any game released so far because by summer,I'm getting an alienware laptop.
How well would it would it perform in Battlefield3/Skyrim(those are from the heaviest games in market) ? It doesn't have to be on ultra settings...I'm OK with medium~high settings.And if it won't perform well,what do you think I should change ?

More about what
  1. Its a good improvement. Make an good gaming PC don't buy laptop for gaming.
  2. This topic has been moved from the section Graphics & Displays to section Systems by Mousemonkey
  3. Get a desktop you don't get a laptop for gaming because of performance, I wouldn't buy an alien ware laptop they're charging you a lot more then what it should be IMO. They probably mark it up like $800+ :lol: -- you should buy the parts and get your local PC to save you tons of cash. :)
  4. I'm not sure that will be much of an improvement. For not a lot of money maybe you could try something like this:

    Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157280
    CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103995
    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820178333

    That total will run you about $250, then get a decent video card like the Radeon 6790.
  5. Well,I'll need a laptop for my studying...Maybe I can increase the budget of the PC and decrease the budget of the laptop,I think I can get something like :
    AMD Phenom II X4 955BE
    4GB DDR3
    AMD Radeon 6850 1GB DDR5
    But of course,I'll have to change my motherboard...I don't think it will cost much tho.

    Edit:Or maybe I can stick to what I 1st posted and get this laptop instead of the Alienware:
    Dell Inspiron n5110

    Intel® Core™ i7-2630QM Processor (6M Cache, 2.00 GHz)
    4GB DDR3 RAM 1066MHz
    640GB HDD 5400 rpm
    DVDRW DL drive
    15.6"High Definition (720p) WLED Display with TrueLifeTM (1366 x 768)
    NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 525M GMA with 1GB dedicated VRAM
    WiFi - Bluetooth - USB - Ethernet 10/100
    Memory card reader
    6-Cell Lithium-Ion battery
    Windows 7 32-Bit

    What should I go for ?
  6. if budgets a concern, you can stick the 955 into an am2+ or am3 mobo,
    but the rest of your proposed (amended) build looks good
    Decent psu of course....
