You will be able to run most games at high detail, some at medium.

Now about the Bulldozers.I wouldnt call them a failure they just arent any better than the phenoms that came out two years earlier.And although their performance isnt spectacular they are priced low enough to be a good purchase.

I suggest you buy a 2x2GB ram kit instead of the 1x4gb one you chose.If you're going to overclock you should also buy a cooler for the cpu.Maybe something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
