I am looking into buying a PC because my current computer is outdated, but I'd also like to try PC gaming. At first, the games I was looking to play were along the lines of Skyrim, Portal 2, and other high-end AAA titles. Recently, I've wanted to play MMOs, mainly SWTOR and Guild Wars 2. Someone already gave me some help picking various parts to build a decent gaming rig (price range $700-$100). Here is what I'm looking at.

-Case

-Motherboard

-Graphics Card

-Power Supply

-RAM

-CPU

-Hard Drive

-Optical Drive

Which setting/FPS will this build play higher-end games at? Is it worth the money ($830 including Windows, accessories, and monitor)? Any advice/opinions are appreciated. Thanks.

Hmm it seems I made a mistake with the URL's. I'll try to fix it later.

Get an Intel CPU which is more powerful, or a Phenom II x4/x6. A lot better than the FX-4100. The link for the GPU directs to the mobo.

if you can wait intel going to drop soon the ib i3 cpu and in sept nvidia dropping the 650 video card. the 650 should have price of 120-150. from online spec and have gdr5 ram not the cheaper ddr3 ram on the 640.
