It's pretty good and should play those games smoothly depending on the settings and resolution. Anyaways have you bought this yet? If not, consider the i5 rather than the i7. Price is not justifiable when there is barely a difference between the i5 and i7, or are you doing some heavy rendering and running heavily threaded apps? If your going for an i5 could get the i5 3570k, and get a more modern graphics card. Also how much are you paying for the ram? 8 gb is more than enough for gaming but if on sale 16gb would not hurt.
