So I have a friend who wants to upgrade his computer so he can run modern games, he has a tight budget of $300 and this is what he plans to purchase:
Gigabyte GeForce GT 630 2GB ASRock 880GM-LE FX Motherboard AMD Phenom II X4 945 G.Skill F3-10600CL9D-8GBNT (2x4GB) DDR3
I/he would like to know how this upgrade could run modern games like: Battlefield 3 Diablo 3 Strategy games etc.
Any other opinions and advice would be super helpful
Thanks in advance for any responses

seems good, but if he could, i would suggest throwing in a couple more bucks for a gt 640. there is a pretty good performance increase for the price.
your model seems like the one with ddr3 ram. if you can afford, try to squeeze in a radeon hd 6670 1 gb gddr5 or radeon hd 7750 1 gb gddr5 or radeon hd 6770 1 gb gddr5. all those should be better than gt630.
