Cheap gaming pc

Guys i'm planning to replace my really old pc pentium D with HD 4670 and so many chopped up parts i don't remember their brands.

Will this run games like witcher 2, Diablo 3, BF3 in 1920x1080

4g g.skill
Gtx 550Ti / HD 6770
GIGABYTE H61M-S2PV-B3 LGA-1155
HDD WD 500g

No need for case/dvd/keyboard/mouse/monitor/OS

    That's a total of 630, without HDD.
    The i5-2500 is good, but the board you listed is pretty weak. With a better board like the one in the combo, you can get a slightly lower CPU and a solid video card and be better off. Plus I chose 8GB RAM instead of 4GB.

    If this change isn't out of budget range, it will give you a lot better performance.
    The graphics card is actually the 560ti and has excellent reviews but it's almost 2x the cost of the 550ti I use. As you can see in my config, I use the MSI Cyclone 550ti wand I haven't had any issues. My friend has the same one and he's way more of a gamer than I am and said it's great but if you ask anyone on here they'll say it's weak.

    If you want to give the 550ti a shot, here's the one I use.
    MSI gtx550ti $130

    WD 500GB Caviar Black

    Same total, now with HDD!

    Most of those are good choices but I wouldn't pay the premiums for the Caviar Black right now and if you're going to pay $249 for the 560TI I would rather get a Radeon 7850 - it's brand new, was designed from the ground up and beats the 570TI in some benchmarks: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7870-review-benchmark,3148.html

    What's the max budget? I can probably suggest a good build for it.
  3. maximum budget will be around $650.00
  4. the 6870 on new egg are not a bad card for the price they are now.the 7870 was the refresh of these cards.
