Recently i opened a thread and got a pretty good answer for building a basic budget gaming rig from the ground up. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/332743-31-bulding-gam...

Now i've noticed a shop in my area having some sort of a bundle deal. The price is pretty affordable but question is which one would allow me to max out graphics playing SWTOR or GTA 4 and all those higher end games. I would choose bundle C but the graphic card seems to be a lil on the downside. So i'm not sure to choose a lower CPU and chuck in some cash for a higher GPU or get the highest CPU one and wait for later on to get a good GPU.

The graphics cards in at least the bottom 2 are pretty much junk, it would probably be better to build your own.
