New Gaming Computer

I am looking to get a new computer and need help. Are these good enough specs to run BF3 and CoD 5 Zombies on Normal or Max settings? If not please recomend a good computer under $800.
Thanks...

    This is what the computer looks like without all that other stuff. The bottom line is a HD 7770 video card and a FX-4100 AMD cpu will not be playing BF3 on Max and to play on normal you may have to play at a low resolution
    Are you looking for a prebuilt only or are you willing to build your own. By prebuilt I mean Cyberpower or Ibuypower building it for you. By building it yourself you can get a better video card and a better cpu preferably an Intel cpu.

    I am buying this pre-buily but if there's a $100 price difference then I will build it. Which Video card would you recommend for normal settings on most games? And would i5 core be a good choice?

    This is an example of what a build would be to build it yourself , total is $889.99. This build would be a lot cheaper with an AMD cpu instead of the Intel.
    The cpu FX-4100 is $109.99.
    The MB is $95.
    That brings the cost down to $800 and with the HD7770 the cost goes down to below $750. But the performance goes down also.

  5. If you went to a place that you can selet the components like what you first posted then yes with the parts I selected it will be cheaper because you have the option of shopping around to get the best price with sales and rebates that you can't do with a prebuilt. Also if you live near a MicroCenter they have outstanding prices.
    If you go to Pcpartpicker.com and do the shopping there you can find the lowest prices on the web with thier service.
