hello there!
I'm a newbie builder and I need some opinions about my proposed build
Can this build run Diablo 3(probably high settings), mw3, mass effect 3, nfs titles (med-high settings)

pu, AMD Llano A3870BE
mobo, Gigabyte A75M S2V
ram, 4gbx1 DDR3 1600cl9 Kingston HX - 1200ph
hdd, 500gb SATA3
psu, Aerocool Strike-X 500w

I don't have the money to buy a decent video card atm.

so there you go, thank you!

I don't think the llano base is a great idea. The graphics are relatively good, but when you add a proper discrete graphics card, it will be underpowered compared to other options.

What is your budget, and what parts do you need?

You might start by looking at this $500 budget build from Tom's. If your budget is less, then save up a bit intil you can do a proper job.
