Hey guys, ive been looking around the web to build a decent, low cost gaming platform. Here is what i got so far

Motherboard- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Ram- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Quad core APU- http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
HDD- http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...
Tower- http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...
I already have a dvd drive and i might buy a AMD Readion HD 6*** series to cross fire. All of this is under 350 without the spare gpu.

So my question to you guys is 1. How well do you guys think this thing will handle games running on the source engine (TF2, L4D, Ect..) and 2. How well do you think this will hold up against newer games? ( Battlefield 3, Diablo 3, MW3, Crysis 1&2) And i dont need to run these on the highest settings or resoulutions, i just want the games to look decent. Thanks for all your time :)
