Hello, again. i wanted to know if the Pentium G620 and Radeon HD 7750 would
work for games like
guild wars 2 and blade & soul on full settings and if that set up doesn't work
would the Intel Core i3-2100 and Radeon HD 6790 work with the 380W PSU ,
also i don't know if i'm going over board on the Ram or not.

I'm open to changes

Approximate Purchase Date: a week and a half at the most

Budget Range: $600-$800 (i don't have a lot of faith in rebates)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, surfing the internet, gaming, watching movies, streaming, more gaming

Parts Not Required: Monitor (I'm debating if i should get a new one)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com(could there be anything better?)

Country: US

Parts Preferences: None just need something reliable

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1440x900

Closest I could come adding Win7/64 without dropping to a Dual Core. if a dual core is fine with you, just use any combination of the 2 builds that you like and the below MB and get a i3 2120 CPU. I would stay with a i5 quad core though, you will be happier in the long run.
