Hello.

I'm thinking about building for my own gaming pc. So, the question would be:

Are these specs enough for playing the newest current games and also the the upcoming ones?

I don't care about the highest settings. Just being able to play them without any lag.

- CPU: AMD FX 4100 at 3.6 ghz
- 8 g of ram memory
- Motherboard: ASROCK N68-VS3 FX
- Graphics Card: Nvidia GTS 450

I hope those make a decent compatible combination.

Thanks in advance.

It could do with a better GPU but the GTS450 should be acceptable game play in most.

I see. Then I should get a better graphics card. But I'm not very sure whether or not PCI-EXPRESS 2.0 type cards are compatible with the ASROCK N68-VS3 FX motherboard...

I already have a LCD 20-inch monitor.

Well, my budget is 800 $.

What games: for example battlefield 3, max payne 3, black ops 2, need for speed the run, need for speed most wanted 2 ( this is going to be launched this year)

As I said in my original post, I don't care about the highest settings and resolution. Just medium settings is ok for me. Maybe I'll aim for just a 1335 x 768 resolution

As to the graphics card, IT SEEMS I should buy a card better than Nvidia GTS 450.

Which one should I get at least? A not too expensive card...

for $800 you can do better. the 20" LCD is probly 1440x900 or 1600x900 if its widescreen.

the N68 motherboard is NOT compatable with the 4100 processor, and the 4100 isn't that great as a CPU.

here's my suggestion
